 The Planning Division of Community Development Department is pleased to announce we will “Go Live” with ePlan Review Service (ProjectDox) Effective 10/1/2021. We heard the community’s desire to provide these services, and we are glad to report this service has been implemented on time and on budget. This will increase the ease of application and potentially decrease plan turnaround times. Applicants will still apply online through Citizen Access Portal (went live June 1st, 2020). Click here to log in or register and apply online now. 

All Drawings/Documents will now be uploaded and reviewed through Project Dox to be consistent with the Building process. After your application has been applied for through Citizen Access Portal, fee paid, you will then get an email inviting you into the ePlan Review software (Project Dox) and a "Applicant Upload" task to perform.

We have created How To Guides that are available under the “Home” tab on the ACA landing page.  These guides will be helpful in helping you navigate the application process. 

For information or questions regarding the applicable application and processes for each type, click here or contact the Planning Division at 208-884-5533.
