Sec. 8-4.11. Time Limitation of Application.
   Every permit application for which no permit is issued within 180 days after the date of permit application shall expire by limitation and become invalid, unless such permit application is pursued in good faith or permit is issued, and construction documents and other data submitted for review may thereafter be returned to the applicant or destroyed by the Building Official. The applicant shall submit permit application and construction documents and pay applicable permit application and plan review fees for such construction work after expiration of the initial permit application. The Building Official may extend the time for action by the applicant for a period not exceeding 180 days on written request by the applicant showing that circumstances beyond the control of the applicant have prevented action from being taken. No application shall be extended more than once. No application approved under a previous code version shall be extended more than 180 days after a new code version is effective. Once an application has expired hereunder, no further action shall be taken. The applicant may submit new or the same plans and pay a new plan review fee at any time after expiration of the original application. Application will be subject to current code requirements.
