ANALYSIS

Please place on February 12 Commission agenda, a referral to the Neighborhood and Quality of Life Committee a discussion regarding establishing a fast track program for small businesses for the Building Department permit process. We recently received a letter (attached) from Ray Breslin regarding the difficulties for small businesses to obtain building permits. This is the not the first time I have heard this. Collier County has a fast track program that is done in collaboration with the Economic Development Department. Please feel free to contact Diana Fontani should you need any additional information.
