It depends on the type of permit, and also depends on the amount and type of comments/questions staff may have upon review. Larger projects, such as reconstruction or new construction, may take a few months or longer to have a permit issued. If your project includes variances, this may add another two to three months (sometimes longer) to the process. Because the City is small, we have several third-party reviewers who also review permit applications. We strive to provide a complete set of comments within three to four weeks of application submittal; however, it may take a longer or shorter amount of time depending on schedules and any issues beyond the control of staff.
Please note that permit fees must be paid up front and the application must be considered administratively complete before it is routed for technical review. You will be notified if any additional information is needed for the application to be complete.
