Fast Track Permitting

The City of Hagerstown can turn plan review around very quickly, provided complete sets of signed and sealed plans are included with the permit and the contractor has up to date licensing with the City.  If any State reviews are required, the City works to coordinate with State agencies and encourage their fast-tracking also.  

City staff is available to sit down with applicants and discuss projects ahead of time to help both of us learn what is involved with the re-use of the property and what permitting may be required.  We are also available to walk through the property with the prospective buyer to discuss any code issues that might be observed or to discuss any planned alterations for the new use and any code issues that may come into play.
