General Information

Your plans are routed to each review agency concurrently. If all agencies approve your application, you will receive an Approval Letter. Included with this letter is the amount of the fees still owed and a check list indicating any materials, such as a Fire Agency fee receipt, which are required at or before the time the permit is issued. Once you have received the Approval Letter, your permit is ready to be picked up.

Application Status- The current application status.  Status may be ROUTING, meaning it has not yet been approved, or READY TO ISSUE, meaning it is approved and ready to issue or has been issued.  Note: The application status never changes to ISSUED because this could be misleading.  Several permits can result from one application and may be issued at different times.  See "Master Permit Number" and"Issue Date" below for more information.  Return to top of page.

Issue Date- The date the Permit was issued.  Return to top of page.

Review Agency column- The agencies which review this application.  Six sets of plans are taken in with most Building Permit Applications.  A plan set is routed to each agency which has enforcement authority for codes and/or ordinances which apply to that type of project.  Each review agency reviews the plans, either approves the plans or denies the plans, and enters the results into the County's Automated System.  If the agency denies the plans, the reasons for denial are also entered into the system.  Agencies may also "red line" the plans or use red stamps on the plans to convey requirements to the builder.  Note:  also shown in this column are two items which are not actually review agencies, but are operations performed by the Building Counter Staff at various points of the process.  These operations are Evaluation, and Consolidation, which are defined below.  Return to top of page.

Review No. column- The number of reviews done by each agency.  When the application is taken in, but no review has been done, this column will show a 1, and the "Last Review" column will show 00/00/00.  After one review has been done, this column will still show a 1, but the "Last Review" column will show the date of the review.  Return to top of page.

Last Review column- The date of the last review.  If 00/00/00 appears in this column, the application is currently being reviewed by this agency, and the "Determination" column will show the review number.  Return to top of page.

Determination column- The status of this application relative to each agency.  NOT REQUIRED means that no review is required by that agency.  APPROVED means that the agency has approved the application, and CORRECTION means that the agency has denied the application.  Return to top of page.

Comments column- When an agency denies your application, the reasons for the denial are entered into the County's Automated System. When all agencies have completed their first review, the comments field on the website shows these reasons  Return to top of page.

Consolidation- The process in which the staff will get documents ready for permit issuance. These documents include the last set of revisions and any red lines or red stamps or other comments from all agencies. Staff also checks to see that there are no obvious omissions, contradictions, or errors by reviewing agencies.  Return to top of page or Return to "Review Agency".
