A frequent reason why projects are slowed is incomplete or poorly prepared application forms. City staff are receiving many permit applications every day, and cannot review applications that are incomplete.
To make sure your project stays on track, be sure you submit all items requested and explain your project in detail.
When you submit your application, intake staff will verify that it is
ready for review before agreeing to pass it along to plans review staff. A much more thorough review of City standards applying to your project won't happen until later when your application works its way through the review queue.
