Express Permitting

A graphic for Express Permitting. The three headers are Express Permitting, Processing, and Turnaround. Express Permitting has a small graphic of a building inspector cartoon in front of a cartoon house and the text says "Window and Door Replacement, Nonmetal Roof, Residential Electrical, Residential Plumbing (including irrigation), Demolition, Sewer Cap, and Residential Mechanical. The Processing section has a blue timer with the time 30 on it, and the text says "When applying for an express permit online, we're committed to review your complete application in 30 minutes or less! That's our pledge!" The Turnaround section has a signed permit document with the word approved stamped in green and the text says "While Express Permitting doesn't necessarily mean express approval, we will work hard to make the process efficient and as timely as possible.

The Community & Economic Development Department is committed to providing residents with an exceptional quality of life and outstanding customer service. While the volume of permit applications has increased, we want to ensure our commitment to excellence by introducing Express Permitting, which aims to review specific permit applications in a 30-minute window during standard business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 AM - 4:30 PM.

Express Permitting applies to permits categorized as:

  • Demolition
  • Residential/Commercial roofing including shingle, TPO, and modified bitumen only.
  • Residential Electrical
  • Residential Mechanical
  • Residential Plumbing including irrigation
  • Sewer Cap
  • Window & Door Replacement (size for size)

Express Permit applications within historic districts or mobile homes do not apply.
