Plan Review Fee

The plan review fee is 55% of the building permit fee, which is based on the valuation of the building permit. The valuation is determined by the building type, and occupancy, using the most recent Building Valuation Data Table. The permit fee can be calculated using the online Fee Calculator.

After the submittal is received by Building Inspection it will be reviewed for completeness and will not progress until all the required information is received. When the submittal has been verified as complete, the plan review fee will then be calculated and emailed to the applicant. Plan review fees must be paid in full before the submittal will be accepted and placed in the plan review queue.
