Permitting

Permitting Requirements and Costs: Permitting Timing and Requirement Details

 
Pioneer Business Park is located outside of the City of Sulphur Springs in the unincorporated area of Hopkins County.  As a result of this location there are no permits for building, electric or other building issues.  We would expect that the company would conform to the national building and safety codes, but there are no permits or other steps to take which would slow construction.  In the area of environmental permits if required, they are issued by the State of Texas.  Hopkins County is a very clean environment.   This means that most air and other permits are issued as a result of the "Permit by Rule" method.  This quickens the time for permitting as no modeling studies are required and the public notices are less.
