Building permit applications are processed as quickly as possible, however, many factors play a role into the length of time a permit application takes. Accuracy and completeness of information have a major effect on application review time, as well as the fluctuations in the seasonal workload. Permit applications with incomplete or missing information only delay an approval process. Good project planning is the best way to assure your permit will be ready when you are. Permit applications are available anytime so there are no restrictions against applying for a permit months in advance of your project.
