MBAKS Issue Brief Urges Faster Permit Timelines

MBAKS has issued a new issue brief on permit review timelines, highlighting the importance of a faster, more predictable permit process. Long timelines make it much harder for applicants to plan projects and drive up the cost of new housing. The new brief features a chart with recommended timelines for a variety of review types, including pre-app meeting, preliminary plat review, land use review and more. It also includes recommendations for improving permit timelines. Thank you to MBAKS members Kurt Wilson with SoundBuilt Homes and Mark Villwock with LDC, Inc. for their input on this brief, which will be a valuable tool as we advocate for permit efficiencies in our jurisdictions.
