What is the process for a plan submittal and review?

Most plan checks require three sets of plans and two sets of structural calculations (if applicable). Depending on the type of project, additional documents and information may be required. All plans must be large enough to be clearly legible in detail and print.


Once a set of plans are approved, a building permit is issued to allow for construction. Construction activity generally must be completed within 180 days from the issuance of the permit. The City may also engage the services of pre-approved outside inspectors for certain types of construction projects.

After Project Completion

At the conclusion of all construction activities, including inspections, a permit will be closed or finalized. After the final inspection, the permit and plans are archived by the City and may be viewed over the counter.
