Permit Streamlining Task Force

In June 2016, SCAQMD embarked on an aggressive effort to expeditiously reduce its pending permit application inventory.  To assist with this effort and improve permit processing efficiency, SCAQMD’s Board approved an action plan that includes measures to help optimize use of current resources as well as opportunities to modernize and automate permit processing.  The dashboard tool was developed to track progress in reducing the pending permit application inventory and help communicate the age of pending applications.
