Can't create jobs as Obama wants due to the plan examiter not knowing the state codes.Denied and then resubmitted.(Wait) Denied for another reason then resubmitted (wait) Still waiting 4 months. Both reasons were up to state code. Said it appears incorrect?????? Do you know what is incorrect? Tell me and we will correct it. Find all reasons at one time for correction and resubmit one time.OH! This may create the appearance that there is less work and you may not be NEEDED.

Mine took over 2 years to get the permit, but my timing was perfect - submitted days after they hauled the Director out in hand cuffs. Still fighting with them 18 months after starting the work with follow on stuff.
Wait until you get the verbal, then they start with the "you need a ..." list. Like a dry well permit, or a curb cut permit, or insurance info for the contractors, or an endless list of other c-rap, that they tell you about one at a time. Finish one, get told the next. They can drag that out about 2 months or more. Not sure why they can't give you one list to satisfy all of the requirements.
Best part is the new expedited review process, where if you pay extra, they review more quickly. But, the review is done by private engineers, and their findings and approvals are subject to town review later, and may result in rework. That sounds like a good approach - NOT.

Not only do the plan examiners misinterpret the State Code, but they are not available, too high and mighty to discuss an issue on the phone, or in person. I tried to legalize a sun-room and ended up filing numerous applications, to correct an unrelated parts of the building that was existing since the 50's. Because the existing plans do not exist in their records, the home owner is now responsible for bringing everything up to code as if it all was all done without a permit. Then when the homeowner realizes the enormous costs involved and pleads with the building dept, they tell her that if she withdraws her application, fines and penalties will be issued for work without a permit. Something is not rite with this Town. It seems like a legalize way of extortion. This needs to stop.
