Commercial Approval Process


In order to maintain the unique sense of place of Mount Pleasant, all new commercial construction, remodeling and alteration activity must be approved through the commercial design review process. The design review process establishes a systematic and uniform review procedure for proposed construction based on the  design review guidelines

​Information on projects going through the design review process can be found on the Projects and Applications Map.

Upon approval through the design review process, plans can be submitted for permitting. Permit plans are reviewed by many entities including but not limited to the Building Inspections Division, Planning and Engineering Division, Fire Department, and Mount Pleasant Waterwoks. A Commercial Plans Coordinator will be assigned to each project to assist developers and contractors through the commercial approval and permitting process. Applicants are encouraged to contact the Commercial Projects Coordinator prior to making submittals. Commercial project reviews and approvals can be tracked through the  COMMERCIAL PROJECTS DATABASE.
