Plan review, permit and inspection update

  • Plan review:  Electronic plans and paper plans submitted prior to March 27, 2020, will continue to be reviewed. Paper plans submitted after March 27, 2020, will not be processed until the Stay at Home order is lifted. For the quickest review, submit plans online.

  • Inspections and permits:  Online permits will continue to be issued. No paper permit applications will be processed until the Stay at Home order is lifted.

    Inspections to critical sectors exempt from the Stay at Home order will continue. These include residential and non-residential building construction.

We examine construction documents and supporting documentation for buildings funded by the state or a state agency and public school district as well as buildings licensed by state agencies like hospitals and prisons to ensure they meet State Building Code requirements. Building Plan Review staff.


Note: Initial applications for plan review are no longer required. Applicants can complete a plan review application online and will receive jurisdictional determination and further instructions. Or, a paper application for plan review can be submitted, which requires additional staff verification and could cause delays.
