Expediting business: The Visalia way

Weekly Site Plan Review

This unique, free process allows project applicants to gather initial feedback from every involved city department within 1 week.

Bi-Monthly Planning Commission

While most community Planning Commissions meet just monthly, Visalia’s Planning Commission meets twice a month to help expedite projects. Applicants seeking a discretionary permit can get their project to a hearing in 6 to 8 weeks.

Fast-Track Service

An applicant may opt to pay an additional 1.5 times the permit cost in order to get faster turnaround times on a project – as much as 2 weeks faster.

Permitting Service

Typically, applicants will receive feedback on the first plan check within 30 days.
