Plan Check Permits


Some permits are more complex and require a review of plans, engineering and code requirements. These permits require a plan check process which must be completed prior to issuing a permit. The City of South Lake Tahoe strives to return Plan Checks within 30 days, and re-checks within 10 days.
The process must be completed within 6 months of submission.
