Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The Plan Review Team is responsible for the review and approval of all permit applications to ensure that proposed construction work meets life safety, accessibility, sustainability, and structural safety requirements of the code.  We are committed to providing timely and professional review of plans and documents for all applications submitted to the Building Division of the Community Development Department. 

To ensure that our services are as efficient and effective as possible we use an electronic plan review system. 

The typical plan review time for the first submittal is 20 business days.

The typical plan review time for resubmitted plans is 10 business days.

Please review the Electronic Plan Submittal procedures to ensure your plan review is not delayed. 

You may contact a member of the Plan Review Team for questions regarding state and local code requirements.
