What is Fast Track?

Fast Track is a streamlined review and permitting process for qualifying applications. Eligible projects that apply through Fast Track will go through a limited review and have permits issued faster than through the standard permit application process. The Fast Track system consolidates the review process by eliminating unnecessary stages of review. To find out if your project qualifies for Fast Track, please refer to the Fast Track Eligible Projects sheet. If a project doesn't qualify it is because additional time for review is necessary to ensure public safety requirements are met. 

How do I apply for a Fast Track PERMIT?

After verifying that your project is eligible, fill out the related Schedule (AB or C) that corresponds with the type of project, along with the applicable submission checklist and General Building Permit Application and provide any required plans and/or supporting documents. Providing a complete application package will ensure a timely review of your application. Please use Fast Track Table for Definitions, Setbacks and other helpful information.

How soon can I get my permit?

Fast Track reviews typically take an average of 10 business days from the date of payment to the date the permit is issued, however, with the new Fast Track system, many projects will have a significantly shorter review time. Review times vary, depending on the type and complexity of the project and the quality of the submission. Submitting complete and clear application materials will facilitate the review process.

If you have any questions about project eligibility or submission requirements, please contact the Permitting and Inspections Department at or (207) 874-8703.
