What are the plan checking turn-around (time to complete review) standards?

Turn-around time is defined as "the time elapsed from date of application, or re-submittal, to the date plan check comments are generated or permit issued." The Placer County plan check turn-around goal is to complete the first plan check review process within 4 to 6 weeks from the date of application. Subsequent reviews, due to such things as corrections required, are to be completed within 2 to 3 weeks from re-submittal date.

Please be aware that turn-around times are impacted by the quantity of applications or re-submittals. The date of application, or re-submittal, defines the placement of project for review among other submittals.
