What plans should be submitted with a permit application?
As a general rule, plans for new construction or substantial renovations should be professionally prepared. With new construction or exterior alterations, a complete plan set shall include a site plan showing the building in dimensional relationship to property lines, as well as all public utility easements and street access. Commercial plan sets require two complete sets of authenticated engineered drawings for the site as well as the building.
