How long does the permit process take?

It depends on the type of application and project. 

  • Tree removal applications generally do not take more than 28 days and may take less depending upon the circumstances. 
  • Design Review, Use Permits, and other types of applications have a standard 30 day review period by various departments.

The applicant is then notified if the project has been deemed complete. Scheduling the project before the Planning Commission is determined upon agenda availability and type of environmental review required. Typically, there are two Planning Commission meetings held each month.
