How long does it take to obtain a permit?

Most permits being electrical, mechanical, plumbing and gas can be picked up at the time the application is submitted. Applications for building permits, signs and all construction projects are only issued after they have been reviewed and approved by the Building Inspector. Following initial plan review generally, two things happen:

  • The applicant is asked to provide additional information in order for the application to be re-reviewed
  • The applicant is informed that their permit may be picked up and advised of the permit fee
