Electronic Plan Review

Electronic Plan Review Process

Applicants can now submit their drawings for plan review via e-mail.
  1. The applicant sends applications, documents, drawings, and calculations via e-mail in PDF format.
  2. From the application form, plan review fees are determined and the applicant is notified via e-mail. Fees can be paid via credit card ($5,000 limit). Fees are due upon receipt of the notification and Plan Review will begin after the fees are paid.
  3. The project is routed, reviewed, and the plan review comments are sent to the applicant within the plan review schedule. Note: Some projects may require submittal of two (2) paper copy sets of plans.
  4. When the project is approved, applicant brings in paper copies of all documents for permit issuance. Making an appointment is highly recommended.
