Digital Plan Review

Recommended browsers are Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari

Overview

The City of Clearwater's Planning and Development Department has partnered with ePermitHub to launch the Digital Plan Room, a new electronic document review solution that is seamlessly integrated into Accela Citizen Access Portal. This solution will introduce many new features to optimize the plan review process. This online application is fully integrated into Citizen Access, the City's existing permit portal. With Digital Plan Room, customers can submit their permit application online and upload plans at the same time.

The Digital Plan Room system includes:

  • Strong digital signatory assurance
  • Simple file uploads and automated versioning at the sheet level
  • Interactive Issue/Condition communication for plan review comments
  • Seamless user experience within Accela Citizen Access, the City’s Building Permitting and Planning Case portal
  • Immediate Digital Signature validation checks upon upload


Other highlights include:

  • Clients will now receive instant feedback when uploading their documentation whether their documents and plans meet the digital signature guidelines
  • Interactive access to color-coded mark-ups (by discipline), Issues, and Conditions from within Citizen Access for reviewing disapproved comments
  • Submission of any corrections will only require revised sheets to be submitted (aka, Digital Slip Sheeting)
  • The small Resubmit button will no longer be the method used to resubmit plans
