How long does it take to get a permit?

If your project does not require prepared plans, you typically will be issued a permit in 1-2 business days. Such types of permits are: re-roofs, electrical service upgrades, furnace and water heater replacements, and window replacements.

If your project requires plans to be prepared and submitted, all reviews have a 15-business-day review period. If your plans need corrections, the 15-business-day review period still applies once corrected drawings are resubmitted. Certain smaller projects such as simple bath or kitchen remodels are reviewed and issued electronically in 2 to 5 business days, depending upon staff availability.

During the plan check process, Building Division staff will route your plans to other City departments for their review and comments. Once the plan check is completed, you will receive an electronic correspondence containing the corrections or additional information that needs to be changed or added to the plans. This will usually take up to 15 business days from submittal.
