Individual departments will contact the applicant if they need additional information. The length of time required for plan review depends on the time of year the plans are submitted and the completeness of the submitted plans. The applicant will typically receive comments within two weeks of submittal.
Once all departments have approved their reviews and the applicant has addressed any comments, the applicant is notified that the red-lined plans are available to be picked up, and the permit is ready to be issued.
Any changes to approved plans must be submitted in person, to a plan reviewer at the Building Department. The applicant must provide a red-lined set of plans noting the changes, so that a plan reviewer may verify code compliance and approve the changes. The red-lines set must be returned to the job site prior to inspections.
