Current Service Levels and Workload Measures

Growth in the construction industry has outpaced the City’s ability to keep up with related workload and meet many of its goals for timely service delivery. To address the increased workload, the Bureau of Development Services, and the other development review bureaus, are hiring additional employees and implementing process improvements. In order to assist customers and the community in developing project schedules, calling with general questions or visiting the City Permit Center (Development Services Center), we have organized service level timelines and workload information by service type.
