Plan submittal packages must include the following:

  • Construction Permit application
  • Bid sheets for project valuation verification (sprinkler and FARS only)
  • Plans in PDF format
  • All specifications and calculations related to the submittal
  • Any other pertinent documentation

Your submittal will be checked for accuracy within 24 hours (not including weekends). A permit technician will contact you via the email address from which the plans were submitted if any additional information is needed or as it is placed in the queue for review.

Once the plans are reviewed you will be contacted either by the plans examiner if the plans need more information for approval; or by the permit technician who will calculate the application and permit fees with instructions on how to pay via phone.

Once payment is complete, the permit tech will email the approved plans and permit. As normally required, plans and permits must be kept on-site and failure to comply will result in a failed inspection and ‘working without a permit’ fee of 2 times the permit fee.
