General Information

The amount of time it takes to review a permit depends upon the request.  For smaller projects that do not require extensive review of building plans, such as signs, fences, demolition, moving, parking lots, or urban chicken permit review, averages about three (3) business days for review. For larger projects such as building additions, new buildings and floodplain development, review time averages about 10 business days as other departments will review the request.  

Contact the Community Development Office with any questions.
