Welcome to ePlans

The Department of Permitting Services is rapidly expanding our award winning eServices including ePermits and ePlans.  ePlans is a web-based application for electronic plan submission and review using ProjectDox software.  

ePlans gives DPS customers and staff from mutiple departments and agencies access to plans, documents and stored data in a way that shares information for a more efficient plan review cycle.  ePlans allows all red-lines, markups and annotations appled to the plan to occur on virtual layers.  ePlans saves customers time and money through the convenience of online submission. ePlans along with ePermits are helping Permitting Services carbon footprint by eliminating the vast volumes of paper and reducing vehicle emissions, gas consumptions by minimizing or eliminating trips to the DPS office.

Training is required to use ePlans.  Customers who want to participate in ePlans will need to attend a DPS training session to access ProjectDox.  Training sessions are conducted every Tuesday alternating between Residential and Right-Of-Way plan review processes.  The sessions are from 9:00 am to 12 pm. 

We are currently working to make the training available online, so stay tuned, as more features are developed.  With this latest enhancement, Permitting Services is open via the internet to transact routine business 24/7.  DPS’ goal is to make ePermits and ePlans a mandatory, seamless process in the future. As of June 30, 2014, applicants submitted 44% of applications for new home building permits using ePlans.
