City To Streamline Building Permit Process

New, 2 comments

Here's a measure that's sure to be popular with area builders: Mayor Emanuel announced today that he'll streamline the building permit process, making wait times much shorter and creating a website where applicants can track permits. In his speech, Emanuel said that previously it could take up to 4 1/2 months to obtain a building permit; he hopes to see that number drop to 35 days. [NBC Chicago]
