Applying for a Permit Online

Use the link for ePermits and enter all requested information into the system. Once all the information is entered, including the case name/type and all other applicable information is filled out, the case will be sent to processing. Once processed, you will receive an email from a supervisor in the Permit Center stating that you are ready to come in and proceed with your case unless you have chosen to proceed within the ePlan process (see below).

Online & ePlan Applications

Online Application System

All users may fill out an online application by electronically entering information on an online form, as opposed to handwriting the information on a paper application. Once the application is completed, one of the following must be done for the application to be processed: Continue the process by bringing paper plans to the Permit Center for review; or Continue the process by submitting digital plans online through the ePlan system, which is more convenient. You will receive an email from "" with instructions on how to upload your plans; please remember to configure your email spam filters to accept email from this address. An "ePlan Applicant Quick Start Guide (PDF)" is available, as well as an "ePlan User Guide (PDF)."

If one of the above steps is not completed, the application will not be processed.

The online application is an option if submitting paper plans, but is required if submitting plans electronically through ePlan. Questions may be referred to the Permit Center at 301-883-5900. Inquiries regarding ePlan submissions may be emailed to our office.
