The most commonly question asked of expediters is, “how long will it take to get a permit?” Unfortunately, there is no standardized, one size fits all answer. The duration of the plan review process is contingent upon several factors, including the scope of work and the location of the project. Specific projects may qualify for an “over the counter” review (minor demolition, electrical or mechanical permits, temporary use permits). In contrast, other projects may take several weeks or even months (ground-up projects, including single-family residences, townhomes, and large scale commercial buildings).
