Planning and Zoning Permits

 

Shortened Permit Processes. All large-scale projects such as Industrial and Commercial projects are subject to the Site Plan Review application process. The Site Plan Review application process is performed at the staff level. Complete applications can be processed by staff within 14 days.

 

Building Permit

 

Plan Check Comments in 2 Weeks or Less. The City guarantees plan check comments for building construction back in two (2) weeks, and it will be done even faster if possible. Building permit review can be processed concurrently with the Site Plan Review application.

 

Pre-Design and Construction Meeting. A critical component to the success of any projects requiring construction is a pre-design and construction meeting with the appropriate City staff and construction team. Participants share rules and regulations, ideas and concerns setting the foundation for an efficient and timely plan check and construction process.
