Miami begins electronic plan review
Written by Miami Today on October 1, 2018
On Monday, the City of Miami launched a new service called Electronic Plan Review (ePlan) to provide residents, contractors and developers with the option to submit plans and supporting documents for building permits and development projects electronically.
Electronic Plan Review is a convenient service that speeds-up the existing permitting process by replacing the traditional paper-based review method. It improves the plan review cycle, reduces costs associated with obtaining right of way, special permits and building permits, and reinforces the city’s commitment to resilience by reducing paper.
“We’re committed to customer service and efficiency, and ePlan helps us achieve this while also proving that resilience and innovation can be part of everything we do,” said City Manager Emilio Gonzalez.
With ePlan the review time is less, since the plan can be reviewed by different disciplines simultaneously. The first phase will include the departments of planning, zoning and public works. It is to be expanded to other areas by year’s end.
