Phase 3: Permitting & Review

A key milestone in building your new home after a fire will be applying for and getting your building and associated permits. The best way to save time and money is to first work with your design professional to ensure your Permit Submittal Package is 100% complete.

Key Activities

  1. Optional: Schedule a pre-application screening at the Resiliency Permit Center.
  2. Work with design professional to complete permit submittal package.
  3. Submit completed permit submittal package in person at the Resiliency Permit Center or submit electronically.
  4. Select and hire a licensed contractor.

We have streamlined the permit submittal package and review process tar­geting 5 days as the maximum comment response time. For less complex projects, we will return comments within 3 days or further expedite with over the counter, same day approval.
