    Operational Review Turn-Around Times for Development Instruments

    Notice: The times listed below reflect our turnaround time goals for Development Services. There may be occasions where these time frames may be exceeded due to extremely high levels of permit activity. We will make every effort to meet, and exceed these goals set by our department.

    Operational Review Turn-Around Times for Building Permits


     Project type  Time Frame
     Residential & commercial building projects up to 20,000 square feet  5 days 
     Projects greater than 20,000 square feet  10 days
     Permits for sites off model plans  3 days
     Electric reconnects/mechanical equipment/plumbing permits  1 day
     Re-review of corrected projects  3 days
     Revisions to issued permits  3 days

    Note: The times above are shorter than the licensing timeframes required per A.R.S. 11-1606.

    All above review times are in business days. Over 99% of projects are completed in less than the posted time frame but projects with exceptional circumstances could take longer.

    Please note that if your project is located in a floodplain, turn-around times are subject to Regional Flood Control District control and may be ascertained by calling 520-243-1800.

    Operational Review Turn-Around Times for Site Development Instruments

    While the County shall strive to conduct reviews for Development Concept Permits, Site Construction Permits, Building/Site Construction Permits, tentative plats and final plats within five business days of receipt, please note that larger projects or projects with greater than average complexities shall take longer. The County shall guarantee a review timeframe of fifteen business days for all projects.
