Construction documents for the project, which include construction plans, specifications and documentation, must be submitted at the Community Development Department counter. The submittal must include the required number of document copies, along with a completed and signed permit application. A plan check fee is due at submittal. (Fees are based upon construction valuation.) Once the plans have been reviewed and approved by all City departments, a construction permit will be issued upon verification of contractor information and the payment of the required fees.
All plans should be reviewed by the Planning Division before construction permit submittal. Call the Planning Division at 619.667.1177 for information.
Plan review applications for which no permit is issued within one year following the date of application shall expire by limitation. In order to renew action on an application after expiration, the applicant shall resubmit plans and pay a new plan review fee.
