These administrative permits are issued by Planning staff. Review time is typically 3 business days for smaller projects, but for large commercial or multi-family projects, allow 2-3 weeks. PLEASE NOTE: The City of Lenoir does not issue building permits. All building, electrical, and mechanical permits are issued by Caldwell County Building Inspections. However, prior to permitting with the County, a zoning permit is required for development within the City.
