The City accepts, and encourages, Plans to be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will benefit both the customer and the reviewer as it helps speed up the process.
If Plans are submitted electronically, they must adhere to formatting standards and digital submission security requirements. This will enable the software to identify drawings and organize large projects more efficiently.
Formatting standards only apply to applications drawn in a computer program (CAD drafting program) such as those used by professional designers. Smaller jobs like decks and garages do not need to follow the formatting standards. They are not a requirement for typical homeowner projects where designers and computer drafting programs are not involved.
For any questions regarding the formatting standards, please call 306-777-7551.
