Wait times in the Development Services Center (DSC)

BDS Service Level Update

Service Level Update: 
Wait times in the Development Services Center (DSC)

BDS is experiencing an overall increase in customer traffic in the DSC of 15% to 25% on a weekly basis from levels of a year ago.

This continued heavy volume of permitting activity is currently peaking on Tuesdays and Fridays, and is resulting in longer than usual wait times to see all plan review staff on those days.

Customers may experience reduced wait times by arriving early in the day on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Please consider this as you plan your next visit to the DSC.
