Four innovative initiatives are transforming the way permitting and building gets done in Corvallis.
“Our goal is to have 60% of project plans be approved in 24 hours” -Ken Gibb
Planning for Success- Streamlining the Process
- All projects get either a permit or a comprehensive “plan review letter” with everything needed to move forward.
- Done in conjunction with a “resubmittal success meeting” 1:1 conversation with the goal of ensuring approval upon first resubmission.
- Free pre-construction meetings after permitting
- Project introduction meetings every Tuesday afternoon –call and make an appointment for an early, no charge, no commitment, conversation. Come with an idea. Explore the options. Create a plan forward.
