The City of Fremont is pleased to announce that starting March 1, 2021, the City is going paperless for all new Planning, Building/Fire, Solar, and Engineering permit requests. Starting March 1, the City is launching its new Electronic Plan Review (ePR) software which will modernize how permits are processed in Fremont. ePR is a part of the City's effort to move from an intensive in-person, paper-centric process to a web-based, digital format that includes maximizing the City's online public permitting portal, Citizen Access.

Beginning March 1, all new requests for Planning, Building/Fire, Solar, and Engineering permits will be processed through ePR. Applicants submitting electronic documents for review need to conform to specific formatting requirements. The ePR Document Format Requirements can be found here. Some of these requirements include: file drawing style; paper size; scale; file type; maximum file size; file content; file encryption; file naming; and page numbering. Upon submittal, project documents will be reviewed for conformance with the Document Format Requirements. Plans/documents that do not conform to these requirements will need to be corrected before they can be processed.

Also beginning March 1, every applicant will need to have a Citizen Access account to access plan review comment letters and marked up plan sets. To set up a Citizen Access account, please visit Citizen Access and select “Register for Account” at the top right of the landing page.

For more information, please visit the City’s Electronic Plan Review webpage.
