What's New?!?!

We have now posted our Time to Review Goals. These goals are based on permit type and scope of work. Though plan reviewers are always striving to meet these time to review goals, sometimes it is just not possible. In addition to the time it takes to perform and complete reviews, there is additional processing time required by the permit technicians to get plans ready for review or permits ready for issuance.
