Reduced Plan Check Time
Expedited Development Review
The Streamline Riverside program is a collaboration of City of Riverside departments including Community & Economic Development, Fire, Public Works, Riverside Public Utilities, Parks & Recreation and Finance. In addition, City staff worked closely with a working group comprised of key stakeholders such as design professionals, developers, and business owners to solicit feedback on the development review process and to formulate recommendations to improve the process. The working group met on several occasions and their input and support was critical to the success of the program. The City also actively engaged with the Greater Riverside Chambers of Commerce to garner feedback and input on the proposed improvements. Collectively, the Streamline Riverside program has significantly reduced entitlement and building permit review times, as well as costs for our customers. Those positively affected by the Streamline Riverside program include property owners, business owners, developers, design professionals and contractors. In fact, nearly all customers who require development or business permits in the City have been positively affected by the Streamline Riverside Program..
