Expedited Reviews

All LPC permit applications are now filed and processed through Portico, the agency’s new web-based permit application portal.

Some types of work are eligible for LPC’s express services, where LPC’s expert staff can review and more quickly issue permits. If your proposed work qualifies for FasTrack or an Expedited Certificate of No Effect (XCNE), Portico will automatically direct your application to the correct service.  

FasTrack Service

LPC has assigned a team of expert preservationists to work exclusively on permits for work ranging from interior alterations to window replacement and HVAC installation on non-visible facades. Through this service, your project will be approved within 10 days if your application includes the required documents and materials and there are no outstanding LPC violations on your building.
