Permit Types

The Village of Palatine offers two types of permits: Express or Standard

Express permits are for smaller detached single-family home projects specifically listed. Our goal is to have these reviewed in 3 business days. 

Standard permits are for larger projects, demolition, permanent signs, new homes or additions and all commercial and multi-family projects. Our goal is to have these reviewed in 10 business days. Pre-Submittal meetings have been suspended due to COVID-19.
