Applicants can have fees waived with the Green Permit Process among other ways.

We check for new building permits hourly. "Active neighborhoods" charts are estimates and exclude permits with an estimated cost of $1 (these are often demolitions). Stats exclude today and yesterday because building permits may appear a day or two after issuance. Stats are a snapshot of building permit data copied to our database and can change each hour.
