Electronic Plan Check

The Electronic Plan Check (EPC) program enables applicants to submit Portable Document Files (PDF), as an alternative to submitting the required, application, construction drawings, and supportive documentation (i.e. structural calculations, soils reports, water supply tests, etc.) in the traditional paper form.

HOW SUBMISSION IS MADE:

New!  The EPC program has been enhanced with e-Planning Services. Instead of visiting the public counter or emailing  planning@cityofsacramento.org, applicants are now able to obtain Planning clearance to submit to Building through our Citizen Portal. Simply sign up for a basic account and create a Planning Application Submittal (PLN). Once Planning clears the project to submit to Building plan review, a Building Submittal Record (SUB) is automatically created, and the applicant is notified via email of next steps. Note that all building permits require clearance from Planning to submit to Building.

For our existing EPC customers we prepared a visual representation of the process before and after our e-Planning enhancement to the electronic plan check process.

PREPARING THE SUBMITTAL PACKAGE:

Files submitted for EPC must be prepared in conformance with specified standards outlined in the submittal requirement documents below.
