150477 1 Formal Policy Discussions - May 12, 2015HearingFiledPursuant to Charter, Sections 2.103 and 3.100(7), and Administrative Code, Section 2.11, the Mayor shall answer the following eligible question submitted from the Supervisor representing District 4. The Mayor may address the Board initially for up to five minutes. Discussion shall not exceed five minutes per Supervisor. 1. Mayor Lee - One of the biggest complaints we hear from small business owners is that the City's permitting process is too difficult. They cite issues such as the high cost for permits, as well as the lengthy amount of time it takes to make it through the process. Additionally, small business owners have expressed that when their project involves review by multiple departments, in addition to Planning Department and Department of Building Inspection, that the process becomes even more lengthy and unpredictable. Given the importance of our small business community, what is your office and the relevant City departments doing to address these permitting challenges? We want to ensure that great, neighborhood-serving businesses can be set up and continue to thriveHEARD AND FILED  Action details Not available
