Commercial Approval Process


In order to maintain the unique sense of place of Mount Pleasant, all new commercial construction, remodeling and alteration activity must be approved through the commercial design review process. The design review process establishes a systematic and uniform review procedure for proposed construction based on the  design review guidelines

​Information on projects going through the design review process can be found on the Projects and Applications Map.

Upon approval through the design review process, plans can be submitted for permitting. Permit plans are reviewed by many entities including but not limited to the Building Inspections Division, Planning and Engineering Division, Fire Department, and Mount Pleasant Waterworks through the Design Review Team.
