**Over the Counter service is geared towards small, residential-only projects that can be plan checked in approximately 10-15 minutes, such as minor kitchen or bath renovations. The service is on a first come, first served basis.

It is recommended that you bring your plans in during regular counter hours to discuss the scope of the project to determine if the project qualifies for the over the counter permitting services.
