Sustained high demand for building permits and a seasonal spring uptick in construction means a longer wait for appointments at the permit counter right now. But for many projects, there’s a better way! From residential to commercial, we can accept by email any plan that needs to be logged in for review. Instead of taking time out of your schedule to drop off documents in person, simply email PDFs of your plans and forms and we’ll respond within one business day. (Minor permits are already available online. Customers eligible for a same-day, “walk-through” permit should continue to come in person.)
The entire review process — from submitting plans to downloading the issued permit —
can be done remotely. To protect everyone’s intellectual property, any plans, drawings, or reports prepared by an architect, engineer, or surveyor must have their professional seal and a valid electronic signature. Use this tutorial to learn how to sign a PDF in just a few easy steps.
