Questions: Please contact Franziska McKay at Franziska@futurewise.org
Topic: Improving Permitting Efficiency and Effectiveness - Coordination,
Communication and Mitigation that Works
How to improve the single family homeowner permit process, including mitigation.
As a note: The focus of this forum will be primarily on single-family landowners with the idea that improving permitting for those properties will also improve permitting for larger projects.
