How Long Does it Take to Get a Permit or Plan Review?

The time it takes to complete a plan review and issue a building permit will vary depending on specifics of the project. The following guidelines provide a general idea for planning purposes. The time frames assume a clean set of plans with no unusual code or zoning issues.

Simple residential remodel / repair with no change in building footprint: 1-3 days; if you call first for an appointment and have a good plan, we can often issue the permit while you wait.

New residential home: 1 week.

Small commercial building or remodel: 2 weeks.

Large commercial project: 3 weeks (for first review or a major revision). Time to review revisions varies depending on complexity.
