Plan Review Level 1

Level 1

This level is when only minimal interior work is proposed such as flooring, carpeting or painting, where no permit is required by the City. In some instances a Certificate of Occupancy (C.O.) may be necessary due to requirements of the landlord or another State agency such as the Health Department.

In order to issue a C.O., a building permit is required at a Level 1 plan review.
