What does "RTI" mean?
Definition: "Ready to Issue" Permit Status
Ready to issue permits in Los Angeles are often abbreviated as RTI. Permits come after entitlements in the chain of development. After receiving entitlements to build something, permits need to be applied for, when they are ready to be issued. Ready To Issue status in Los Angles is the last stage of the process of the permit application before fees are paid and the project becomes "Shovel Ready."
