Residential Drawing Submittal Package

Building code compliance is the obligation of the design professional(s) and the building contractor. This plan review guideline is to be used to ensure that the drawing submittal package is complete, so that the City’s plan review process can start.
Two copies of each required drawing are required at plan review submittal.
