Upon good cause, the job will be reinstated for an additional 12 months and the full fee will be re-instated. The process can be repeated for an additional 12 months, but cannot exceed three years.

3. If a job has been approved and applicant is issued a permit, after 12 months has passed with no activity, a $100 reinstatement fee and a $100 renewal fee will be assessed. If a job has been approved and applicant is issued a permit, after 24 months has passed with no activity, the job may be reinstated with a full or partial fee, plus a $100 renewal fee.

Prior to this summer, once a project received approval, the applicant could take their time before pulling the permit. Not any more.
