National Permit Expediters worked along with Halversen Development, the developer of Prosperity Village Square Shopping Center, to coordinate the permit submittal for the new construction projects of the Publix Super Market and five retail buildings.

Publix was a phased construction project totaling 49,533 sq.ft.  The first phase consisted of the main building and the second phase included the front building canopy, the loading dock, and the pharmacy canopy.

On that same parcel were three new construction retail shell buildings totaling 23,600 sq.ft.  These projects were submitted through the express review process which allowed all the designers to meet with the reviewers to complete the initial review in one day.  Upon completion of the review, comments were received so the revisions could be made and re-submitted within two business days.  This project also encompassed two Revision To Approved Plan (RTAP) submittals which provide a quick review of revisions that were made to address field changes.

The final two buildings included Outparcel #1 totaling 6,000 sq.ft. and Outparcel #3 totaling 9,700 sq.ft.  These parcels were in the Conditional Zoning district which required an elevation approval through the planning department before plans could be submitted for the building department review.  After the plans were approved by the building department, an RTAP submittal was made to address field changes to Outparcel #3 which allowed a quick review of the revisions.
