Now you’re at the stage of obtaining permits for your network, what does this look like? Any network builder will be required to obtain permits for construction over the course of the many months or even years that the project will be underway. Cities should work directly with their network partners to ensure that these permits will be processed efficiently and timely in order to reduce the number of construction costs and time.
Setting timelines is important for providing certainty and expediency for the network builder. It is important that the city involved in the project retains a level of flexibility so delays can be avoided at all possible.
Another way to create a steady permitting process is by waiving fees, although it is important to keep an eye on financial implications if they were to arise. The city officials should review how the payment processing will affect the permit process timing.
