How long does it take to get a permit?
Trade (electrical,plumbing, mechanical) permits are issued in the same day pending all up-to-date information is on file with the City of Hagerstown.

Building permits are usually issued approximately two-three weeks after a complete application is submitted, but processing time may take longer if application is incomplete or project is more complex.

Small Residential Projects may qualify for Next Day Building Permits.
