The DeKalb County Department of Planning and Sustainability Development Services Division will host a fourth Same-Day Permit Event aimed at streamlining the permitting process.
The program will be held the last Friday of each month through Oct. 25 from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Registration is required to participate in the program and will be accepted Aug. 19-23 until 5 p.m. for the Same-Day Permit Event on Aug. 30.
Residents and business owners seeking permits for residential additions, alterations and move in as-is can register online after following instructions here. Because Home-Based Business Licenses are now offered same-day, every day, they are no longer offered as part of the same-day permit program. Citizens unable to register online may call 404-294-2000 to sign up. Registrations are accepted up to 5 p.m. on the last day of the registration period.
During registration, applicants will be screened for eligibility and provided instructions on how to prepare to receive a permit in one day. Applicants selected for the same-day process will be contacted by DeKalb Development Services staff and provided an appointment to submit an application and other documents in person.
Following submissions, applicants will be offered a choice to wait at the permitting office or return at the end of the day to pick up permits. All permits will be ready by 4 p.m.
