Permit Review Process at DCD
Department of Community Development (DCD) in cooperation with the
Environmental Health and Public Works Departments, is beginning a new
process for reviewing Single Family Residential building permits.
It’s called the “Upfront Review Team,” and was developed out of DCD’s
“LEAN” improvement project and works like this:
a person calls to schedule an appointment to submit a building permit
application, they are given checklists to make sure they have everything
DCD needs to review their application once it’s submitted. Then, our
Upfront Review Team is invited to the appointment, shows up and starts
reviewing the application while it’s still being taken in!
eliminates the delays caused by routing the application to different
departments, and the chance that the applicant will get a letter weeks
later, telling them they need to submit more information. The Review
Team can talk directly to the applicant and explain any issues that may
come up, or if they need more information, so the applicant will leave the
appointment knowing exactly what they need to do to get their permit.
This drastically reduces the time, confusion and frustration that used to
be common with the old process. Ideally, an applicant could get their
permit the same day they submit their application! DCD anticipates
applying this process to all land use and building permit applications over
time. Contact Sally Ellis or David Wayne Johnson for more information
