This is a lengthy process and involves an architect, city planners, building code inspectors, water and sewer administrators, parking and historical district managers. Many meetings and negotiations between our community and city officials will be necessary. This process usually takes 4-8 months depending on the complexity of the structure. Relationships between the city and our community will be critical in this process.
