City of Austin - Commercial Plan Review Dept. CURRENT DELAYS

 I just spoke with Ron Menard with the City of Austin's Commercial Plan Review Department and they currently have around a twenty-five day backlog for new project intake. SO, if you have an upcoming restaurant project with typically a twenty-one day review period, Ron just confirmed that this will most likely take FORTY-SIX days to receive comments on. YIKES!!!!

Plan ahead!!!
