eReview Process

In an effort to ensuring our customers experience a more efficient and effective plan review, Staff offers the following recommendations:

Plan Set Submittal 

When uploading a plan submittal for review, we suggest the engineer of record register as the applicant in order to upload the document(s) which they are responsible.  Additional engineers/architects will be able to upload plans after the application is submitted.

The engineer/architect will need to submit a signed and wet sealed or embossed sealed letter to the City which identifies the plan set or plan set sheets they have taken ownership. This step will be repeated for each submission. 

Approval of Plans

Once your plan submittal is ready to be approved, Staff will apply a watermark approval stamp, lock the plans and make the set available to the applicant via the Maitland interface.  The applicant will then print the final approved set of plans and submit the hard copy sign & sealed. The final approved set of plans with watermark and Sign & Seal will be scanned and uploaded into the system.
