Walk-Thru Permit Process

The hours of operation for the walk-through permit process are indicated below:

Building review walk-through hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and every Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Fire, Electrical and Mechanical walk-through hours are Tuesday and Thursday only from 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. 

The walk-through permit process is available for the following types of permits:

  1. Commercial Tenant Permits with the accompanying Use and Occupancy Permit, when required. May be limited to the size and type of construction.   Please refer to our Tenant Fit-out Guide for walk-thru criteria.
  2. Applications for Use and Occupancy Permits without construction.  This procedure does not apply to buildings erected prior to 1971, properties serviced by private well and septic, or buildings with changes to the proposed use of the original building.
  3. Building Sign Permits.
  4. Fire sprinkler site releases.

Properties located in the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area, Historic Sites, and applications determined by any reviewing agency to be inappropriate for the walk-thru process must go through the regular review process.
