Question:

How long does the plan review process take?

 

Answer:

 (New house, under-roof construction, addition, bedroom addition) This has too many variables that are not under PDI control (i.e., how far out is E.S. on field work, are the construction plans prepared by a professional, is the lot recorded in the current owner’s name, are flood-prone soils present, etc.)

If we only consider PDI, then the time frame is as follows:

  • house – no more than five business days;
  • under-roof construction – 1 hour;
  • addition – 1 hour;
  • bedroom addition – 1 hour.
