One-Stop Permit Assistance program

| The One-Stop Permit Assistance program was established to serve as a clearinghouse for information related to the city's various permitting processes. This program's objective is to ensure that businesses and industry are aware of what permits they are required to apply for, what information they will need to provide in the permit application, and the permit process. The one-stop program coordinator doesn't personally address all inquiries, but brings together appropriate staff to address questions or concerns and ensure that inquiries receive a timely response. The one-stop program also coordinates activities with other state, federal or other assistance organizations and regulatory programs in an attempt to address questions and concerns in a timely and comprehensive manner.
