What is the typical plan review process and time?

After a Community Development Department Technician verifies that the application package is complete, and you pay the Plan Check Fees, a set of plans/documents will be forwarded to relevant departments for review; Building Safety, Planning, Public Services, and Fire. Approval from all departments/divisions is required prior to permit issuance.

The plan check process is then tracked in our Automated Tracking System and the project is assigned a standard turn-around time. The standard turn-around time for an initial review is 10 calendar days. The standard turn-around time for follow-up reviews (rechecks) is 5 calendar days.
