Whether you're modifying a structure, putting up a fence, or building a house, you're responsible for getting the right permits before you start work. Getting a permit - depend upon how large or how small the project - can take a single step or multiple steps involving additional review agencies outside of DCRA.
The Permit Center closes at 4:30 pm daily. The customers can obtain a Q-Matic Ticket to begin the permitting process until 3:30 pm. Every effort shall be made that all tickets are processed the same day. If not, the process will be completed the following business day. The cashier closes promptly at 4:30.
Some permits, like our Postcard Permit or Supplemental Permits, you can get with a few clicks of the mouse. Larger projects can take 30 days to review.
