Over the next year, the City is phasing in a new more efficient plan review process for all types of building permits. This new process will establish dedicated windows of uninterrupted time for City staff to perform plan review. During these windows, applicants will not be allowed to submit corrections to checksheets. These review windows will create a more efficient development review process. This new process will be standard when electronic plan review is rolled out.
Phasing of Review Windows
We will be gradually phasing review windows into our process, starting with Process Managed Projects on November 1, 2018, and then New Single Family Residential (NSFR) Permits on January 2, 2019. Plan review windows should be fully implemented by October 1, 2019. Please see our plan review informational video here for more information.
As we move closer to the implementation of review windows for NSFR Permits we will send out additional public notifications, as well as hold a Lunch and Learn event.
Here’s how the change will benefit our customers:
We are making this change to complete reviews and permits on a shorter timeline for our customers. BDS is always looking for ways to make our processes more efficient, and plan review windows will help our staff work quickly, producing results faster. More detailed information about plan review windows will be published as the implementation date nears.
