How long does it take to get a permit?
Permits that do not require a plan review can be issued over the counter when a completed application is submitted and all required fees have been paid.

For permits requiring a plan review, it typically takes around 10 working days from when the application is made, until all departments have completed their review. As soon as all departments have completed their reviews, the applicant is notified of the results. If the permit application and all plans have been approved, then the permit is issued when all required fees have been paid.
