What is the Express Permitting Program?
The Express Permitting Program offers a more timely review process for a number of environmental permits required for development. This program offers quicker permit decisions and certifications as well as consultation to identify necessary environmental requirements. Higher fees are charged to support additional staff for the express review. A pre-application meeting is required and a well-documented application with supporting technical information is necessary for a thorough and swift review. Multiple permits that may be required for a project may be reviewed concurrently.
