The process is quite simple and very efficient, here’s how it works. Once an applicant is ready to submit for review, they complete an on-line application, which is emailed to one of our Divisions. The applicant then receive an invitation into the project via a link that is emailed back to them. The applicant uploads electronic copies of the construction documents, and the Division is notified via an email sent from the ‘project’, that the documents are ready for review. Documents can be dwg, dwf, pdf, tiff, etc. file types, as ePlans recognizes a vast range of extensions.
Next, staff review the documents, mark them with any stamps, comments and/or corrections that are required, notify the applicant via email from the ‘project’, that the review is complete, and either the permit is approved or there are items needing addressed. Changes and revisions are made by the applicant and then the revised copy of the document is uploaded. RFI’s, revisions, deferred submittals and phased construction are all managed in the same manner. Review can be completed concurrently by all departments, and the applicant can actually observe our progress as the documents are examined. Paper documents need not be printed until after the project is approved and the permit issued, then as many sets of approved plans can be printed as necessary.
