We are excited to let you know the Issued building permits dataset was refreshed today with enhancements. 

Here are the highlights:

§  includes elapsed time from when a permit application received a permit number through to when the permit was first issued

§  a new grouping field, PermitCategory, that focuses on higher volume, lower complexity project scopes

§  a new Report by month tab – a summary of the number of permits issued by year-month and the median elapsed time for those permits for each of the groupings within the new PermitCategory field
