How long does it take to get a permit?

Reviewand processing of complete applications takes approximately 2 to 4 weeks. Many residential applicants can obtain a permit within 2 weeks, barring any missing documentation, approvals or fees. Commercial applications often require approvals from other agencies, such as Site Plan, Fire Marshal, Suffolk County Health Department, etc, so the time frame may be extended, but applicants will typically get review comments within that 2 to 4 week window.
