The EA Extra (EAX) sat down with Brigid Falasca for this interview as she begins her two-year term as EAP President.
 
EAX: How do you think we can bring additional value to EAP member companies?
 
Brigid Falasca (BF): We are always looking to bring more value to each member.  Our focus is on business success.   One thing that I've learned is that our membership is very diverse within the electrical and H&AC industries. So different members have very different things that they would like. As incoming President, I am very interested in hearing from members about what they want.

City of Philadelphia - L & I 
Permitting and Licensing Updates
March 2017  

What's New in Permitting?

Big News!  We are pleased to announce that you can now look up that status of a permit application on the L & I website.  Just enter the application number obtained at the time of filing into the Permit Application Tracker to determine the status of a new or revised permit application submission.
 
   
All revised application submissions must now be screened by a plans examiner stationed in our Public Services area prior to acceptance. This is a pilot program designed to reduce overall application processing time. All feedback on this initiative is welcome and may be submitted to Elizabeth Baldwin, Development Division Director,  at elizabeth.baldwin@phila.gov .
