In an effort to streamline the plan review process, reduce our environmental impact and address a lack of physical storage space, the City of Greenville will be converting to a “paperless” plan submittal, review, tracking, and storage system in the coming weeks.
Beginning November 1, all residential and commercial building plans; site plans; construction documents; and all other construction drawings must be submitted electronically in conjunction with your online permit application. This change only applies to new submittals that take place on or after the launch date – it does not apply to existing projects.
We realize that this is a significant change in the way we do business and we will do everything we can to ensure a smooth transition for everyone. Detailed instructions on how to prepare documents for electronic submittal can be viewed online at www.greenvillesc.gov/eplans
. City staff members are also available to assist customers in converting their documents to electronic versions if needed.
While moving from a manual review process based on paper documents to an electronic system will help the City achieve a number of goals, it should also have a positive effect on our customers. In addition to eliminating the cost of printing multiple sets of drawings and the inconvenience of delivering them to City Hall, this new system will also benefit our customers by facilitating a more timely and efficient review of their documents.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Please feel free to contact Buddy Skinner, the City’s building codes administrator, at 864-467-4553 or firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions you may have.
