Commercial permits require a minimum of 10 business days for staff review. Some residential permits can be issued immediately over the counter, including roofing, re-siding, HVAC, plumbing, and window replacements. Permits that require plan approval generally take five to seven business days for staff review. Examples include garages, additions, remodeling, decks, and others. Projects that involve variances or other land use requirements may require more time for review.
