Walk-In Plan Review
A "walk-in" plan review service is offered Monday - Friday from 8 - 10 a.m. for residential and small commercial projects. Most residential additions and renovations may be reviewed using this service along with a limited number of minor scale commercial projects. Whether any particular project may be reviewed using our walk-in service will be determined by the plan reviewer on duty.
