If your permit application uses typical details, this "Current Expected Time-to-Approval" could be shorter. If your permit application is more complex or incomplete, the "Current Expected Time-to-Approval" could be longer. For single-family dwelling, townhouse, retaining wall, deck, detached addition, and demolition, there may be a site component to consider (see the Site Plan TTA infographic for site-related "Current Expected Time-to-Approval").
