Corvallis Permitting and Inspection – Focus on Success

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.
