Building and Grading Plan Check Procedures

Plan Check Engineer Review

The permit application may be approved after the first review, or the permit applicant will receive a plan check correction list indicating all issues that need to be clarified or corrected before the plan can be processed for permit issuance.

Plan Check turnaround times are defined in Informational Bulletin No. 279.
