Public Works Applications

Project Dox has been retired. Electronic plan review is now integrated into our Accela Citizen Access system allowing you to create an application, submit your plans, and monitor application status without waiting for an invitation to a separate system.

Updated Record Statuses

Better track your projects through the ePlans process with clearer record statuses: know when an application may have been deemed incomplete, when a plan review letter is available, when fees are due, and when the permit is issued. A full list and definitions of existing and new statuses is available in our guides and tutorials.

Planning Application (coming soon)

Soon you will be able to apply with a single application for all of your planning cases with a corresponding application checklist for the style of application.

COVID-19 Response

The Building Division’s COVID response continues to provide inspection services to your projects with a few changes in service to ensure protection for you, your customers, and our staff.

  • Inspections are primarily conducted in the AM.
  • In occupied buildings, all parties will need to wear approved masks during the inspection and maintain 6-feet distance.
  • Due to staff availability, we will be limiting the number of inspections in a day and may need to roll inspections over to another business day.

We understand these changes impact your projects and we tried to develop safeguards that can allow us to continue to provide inspections while minimizing impacts to your projects.
