Limiting Weight of Building Plan Sets
The Development Services Center is implementing a 20-pound weight limit for building plans sets. Plans must be rolled and bound separately. Two or more sets rolled together cannot exceed 20 pounds. Single plan sets that exceed 20 pounds must be separated into volumes. Please keep this in mind when planning your visit. We appreciate your patience in implementing this new process.
Introducing Civic Insight, the City's new interactive map that plots major development (vertical construction) permit activity citywide over the past 10 years.
