How long does it take to get a permit?
It depends on the type, size and complexity of the project. When submitting an application, the time of year is also an important factor. According to State law, the department has 20 working days for the initial review (approval or denial) of an application. A complete application will include proof of prior approvals, plans that are clear and indicate compliance with the current applicable codes and regulations.
