Is ePlans 100% paperless? Do I still need to print paper copies?
During the submittal and review process, ePlans is entirely paperless for agencies using ePlans.

However, if your plans need to be reviewed by agencies who are not using ePlans, you will have to take a hard copy to them for review. You will need to provide proof of their approval by uploading their approval signature or letter to the "Approved" folder in ePlans.

When your plans are approved by all departments, you will receive an email indicating that your plans are approved and after payment, they will be ready for download.

You will be responsible for printing out a set of plans for your job site.
