How long does it take to get a permit approved?

Zoning permits can usually be processed very quickly, sometimes in as little as two days.  Projects such as new buildings or other projects that require a building permit and/or engineering review can take up to two weeks and very large projects can take well over a month.  Most residential permits are approved in two weeks or less. If your project is non-compliant with the Zoning Code and you decide to request a variance from the Board of Zoning Appeals, the permit can take considerably longer as the Board only meets once a month.
