How long does it take to get a permit?

It depends on the complexities of the proposed project. Permits for sheds, pools, minor renovations, etc. are usually issued within 2 to 3 days following the submission of a complete application.  A permit for a new home, commercial and more complex projects may require 10 to 14 days to process from the time a complete application is submitted.
