Recommendations for Submitting Online Using Citizen Access Portal 

*User Guide for New Single Family Online applications
*Step-by-step instructions for submitting documents to your Single Family New project.


1. For Description, please type “Construction of new single family dwelling” into the description line.

2. For Valuation, please type “$1” into the valuation line. We valuate homes based on heated v/s unheated square footage. Unfortunately the new online submittal process doesn’t allow you to enter this way, so the City will continue to enter the information based on numbers listed on the application.

3. When uploading the documents, please name each document so they are easily recognizable. For instance, name the site plan “Site Plan”, name the IECC form as “IECC Form”, and label Application as “Application” etc. Clicking through mislabeled documents is time consuming for the reviewers. By labeling the uploaded documents as mentioned above, it will drastically speed up the review process.

4. Please combine architecture and engineering drawings into one PDF and name it Building Plans.

5. Please make sure to include all required documents when submitting online. Uploaded documents should include and be named:

  • Application
  • IECC form
  • Manual J
  • Res Check (optional, but appreciated)
  • Site Plan, or Plot Plan
  • Building Plans(combined Architectural and Engineering drawings)
  • Windborne Debris Detail (can also be included in Building Plans)
  • V Zone Documents when necessary


6. Lastly, when uploading Building Plans documents, please make sure all pages are the same size, scale, and are oriented in the “landscape” format. New approved plans through eReview receive a digital stamp on every sheet of the Building Plans. If the pages differ in size, scale, and/or orientation, the stamp, when applied to all pages, ends up misaligned, and requires the reviewer to then manually adjust the stamp for each page, making the stamping process very tedious.


By following steps 1 thru 6 listed above, it will drastically speed up the review process. Thank you in advance and we look forward to receiving your online submittals!
