The WSJ ran an article on July 17, citing Long Island as the slowest region in the country to get a residential building permit. Many commercial projects also take several years to get approval. Those in favor of a speedier permitting process believe it would help create jobs and expand the tax base. Those comfortable with the permitting process fear Long Island could become a "sixth" borough of NYC. Does it take too long to get residential and commercial building permits on Long Island?
