Most often, the initial contact any resident, developer, or contractor has with the regulatory process occurs when a development is still an idea. Because this is the point where an individual decides to commit time and money to a development, specific information on permits and regulations is needed.

Information is needed in order to test the feasibility of a particular course of action. Does the development conform to the City's Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance? What permits are required? How long will it take to get the permits? How much do the permits cost? How receptive will the City's officials and the general public be to the project? What public actions may be pending that would affect the proposal?

The City of Quincy Planning and Development Department - Inspection Office hopes the following permit information will reduce confusion concerning the permit process and save everyone involved in the permit process both time and money.
