For some types of residential and small commercial projects, the city’s Building Division now offers a reduced timeline process that can save significant time on a project on building plan checks and permits. These include “Over-The-Counter” permits, 1-day and 2-day permits and 3-day Express Plan Check. See the New Reduced Timeline Process flier (PDF) for details.
All other projects are taken in for plan check and typically are reviewed within 14 calendar days, however, Planning and Engineering Land Development reviews of building permits may take up to 28 calendar days (up to 14 calendar days for Solar, EV charging, misc. electrical/plumbing/mechanical, pool permits, and aluminum patio covers).
No appointments are necessary to submit a project for plan check. The Development Services public counter is located on the 1st floor of City Hall at 13325 Civic Center Drive. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Fridays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed every other Friday. The Building counter is closed for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every day.
Effective June 1, 2022, all building permits will be required to be submitted electronically.
