Be aware that it is important to plan ahead when submitting your permit. Typically the busiest time of the year is in the spring, and continues through the fall. Plans and applications are reviewed in the order in which they are received, no matter how large or small they may be.  Submitting an incomplete application and/or plan will greatly slow down the review process.  City policy is to set an incomplete application aside until all required information is submitted.
