NOW AVAILABLE: Electronic Plan Review

Electronic Plan Review (EPR) is currently available for:

  • Residential building construction projects (except One-Stop)
  • Commercial building construction projects (except One-Stop)
  • Projects within the City's right-of-way or tying to City utilities (Office of the City Engineer)
  • Sign Administration
  • Electronic locks
  • Residential solar panel

On April 1, 2019, the review of new single-family residences will transition to 100 percent electronic submittals. Minor residential projects submitted through One-Stop will continue to be paper-based. Sign Administration, electronic locks and residential solar panels have all transitioned to 100 percent electronic submittals. Commercial building projects and City Engineer projects may be submitted online or by paper.

Two online systems — iPermits and ProjectDox — are used to complete specific functions in the plan review process. Separate logins are required for each system; however, the same email address and password may be used to set up each system account.
