Express Permit Reviews are available for both Residential and Commercial projects. Building and permit 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 involved, 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 present throughout the review process. Otherwise, the person authorized by the owner to make modifications to the plans / design must be present.
Eligibility for Express Permit Review: To see if you project is eligible, please review the qualifications below:
Express Permit Review Hours: if your project qualifies for Express Permit submission, you can visit us at 200 S. Ivy Street, on the second floor every Wednesday from 1 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
If you have any questions about this process, our plan review staff looks forward to guiding you through the process. For the building department contact information, please visit the Contact Information page.
