Perform building code plan review on one & two family dwellings and townhouse projects when the project meets one or all of the following criteria:
The plan submittal process varies depending on the type of project. Below are links to specific web pages that focus on Townhouse projects and Master Plan review processes:
Residential Master Plan Submittal: Plan submittal for detached one-family dwellings where the plan will be built multiple times.
Townhome Project Submittal: Plan submittal for attached single family dwellings.
Our goal is to perform plan reviews for one & two-family dwellings
within an average of seven days of the plan acceptance date and townhouse
project reviews within twelve days of the Project acceptance date. These
timeframes vary depending on the volume of submittals.
The RTAC Electronic Plan Submittal program (RTAC-EPS), implemented in January 2015, is designed for one-time residential build projects, or custom-built residential projects, that require plan review. Customers can submit an online permit application, complete and upload the necessary zoning and erosion control forms in PDF format along with the project plans for review and permit issuance.
Note: Projects reviewed three or more cycles in the building discipline will incur an hourly review fee of $145.00.
