that's is great- how long to get the building permits after the lots get approved?

The total process is about 30-36 months to move in...God willing.

wow-
prior to moving to Elkhart we lived in Arizona, I worked for a custom home builder (Cave Creek, Scottsdale, Carefree area) as home designer/project manager- it would take about 2-3 months to get a permit and cost 2000-3000 for the building permit and full sets of prints, floor plans, elevations, foundation, sections, electrical, mechanical, plumbing all the details and pages of notes.
when we moved to Elkhart County, I went to work for a builder (and still do....) and was awed when I went to get permits. took about 2 weeks and cost 250.00 for the permit and 100.00 for the septic. they just want the site plan and square footage of the house. all where you live I guess
lets hope they get it done sooner than later!!

At the Clark County Building Department we have a staff of plan checkers that love their jobs, and in turn they want to do as thorough a job as possible to ensure the public safety... is there a hint of sarcasm there... 8).

The Civil Improvement process of taking a 2.5 acre piece of land and subdividing it into four 1/2 acre building lots in Clark County is cumbersome and expensive. The permits and fees will amount to a few thousand dollars, the building permit and connection fees will be enough to choke a horse. The water connection fees alone are several thousand dollars for a residential connection, then the sewer connection fees, etc, etc, etc.

It will take all of 30 months from now to move in...if all goes well.

They didn't have the Clark County Building Department to contend with. Design and permitting will take 24 months.

I had no idea the process could take that long anywhere in the US. Twelve years ago we bought property in SE MN, and three months later moved into a four bedroom, 3 bath, 3 car garage home.

It is rather ridiculous. Back in the day (1988ish) I built a Rural US Post Office in Amargosa, NV. The only required inspection was for the septic tank and leach field. From start to finish it took about 60 days. Even without all of the inspections, approvals, and so forth the building is still in service today...go figure.

Another small piece got put in place today, we received the proposed site layout. Once I get a scale copy made I'll be able to start doodling the shop.
