Permit Application Checklist
Projects are expected to participate in the BRRIT pre-application process and address any issues that would delay permit issuance prior to submitting permit applications. During the pre-application process, projects should review the permit application checklist and discuss with the BRRIT to facilitate submittal of a complete application.
