New Zoning Permit Process

As of Monday, May 1, 2006, there is a new process to receive zoning approval for permits.

If you are applying for a permit, you can now apply to receive Zoning Review approval prior to meeting with a representative from the Department of Construction and Permits. Applicants can go to the new Zoning Review stations located on the 9th floor at the existing Easy Permit Process counter where Zoning Review staff will be available to look over plans and permit applications to resolve Zoning issues and authorize Zoning approvals.

Designed to facilitate the permit process, this new process will make DCAP appointments more efficient and expedite the issuance of permits.
