Express Permit Reviews are available for both Residential and Commercial projects. Development Services currently offer a real-time permit application review program for specific residential and commercial tenant infill / tenant improvement projects that meet pre-specified qualifications (see below). With your commitment of time and active participation in the review process, our goal is to be able to issue the permit on the same day or, in some cases, within a few days!
Depending on the project's scope of work, the process may take an hour or it may take several hours from start to finish. If the plans are stamped by a design professional, they must be available throughout the review process. Otherwise, the person authorized by the owner to make modifications to the plans / design must be available. By phone is fine.
Eligibility for Express Permit Review: To see if your project is eligible, please review the qualifications below:
Express Permit Review Hours: if your project qualifies for Express Permit submission, Express reviews are processed each Wednesday from 1 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. We do accept Express permit submittals any day of the week, however. Please just note on the application that you would like your project to be processed as an Express permit.
If you have any questions about this process, our staff looks forward to guiding you through the process. Feel free to call us at (541) 774-2350.
