Attention Mechanical Permit Applicants: Starting January 1, 2016, you must apply for mechanical plan review permits online using DPD’s Project Portal. Paper applications will no longer be accepted. If you haven’t done so already, please create a Project Portal account. There are resources online to help you navigate the process and staff are available for questions in-person in the Applicant Service Center. This is the first step towards moving the permitting process online. Watch our website for additional information regarding this change.
