What are the timelines for processing land use permits?

Generally, the following timelines are established for permits requiring Planning Department review; however, applications that are incomplete or that trigger the need for additional information may result in delays.

  • Review of Building or Grading Permits: 5 working days unless environmental review is required for the grading permit.
  • Administrative Development Permits (Home Businesses, new signs, Large Family Day Care Homes, 2-4 Multiple-family dwelling units): 30-36 days.
  • Lot Line Adjustments or Pre-Application Reviews: 45 days
  • Zoning Administrator or Planning Commission projects: 84 days for projects requiring environmental review; 60-64 days for those that are exempt.
