This depends on the complexity and type of floodplain use permit that is being applied for as well as the quality of the documents that are being submitted with the permit application. For single-family homes and most residential development, a floodplain use permit can often be issued within 2-5 weeks of submittal. This is to allow time for District staff to complete a compliance review and for the applicant to address any comments or problems with their permit. In many cases, a floodplain use permit can be issued before the building permit is approved. More complicated permit applications can take several months to be approved.
