Timelines for Permit Review
If your application is complete and correct, in most cases:
1. Applications submitted for electrical, plumbing, HVAC&R, gas, extensions, and amendments to change or add contractors will be ready for payment within one hour of submission, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
2. For all other permit types, applications submitted by 9:00 AM will receive an approval or response by 2:00 PM the same business day. Those submitted after 9:00 AM will receive an approval or response by 2:00 PM the following business day.
3. Regardless of your permit type, if there is a special circumstance (e.g., your application needs to be referred to another agency, or there is a tag on your property), a staff member will send a message to you within the timeframes listed in #2.
