ePlans is The City of Santa Clarita's electronic plan review system that allows paperless submission of project plans and documents.  The system encourages sustainability by reducing paper use, printing and storage costs, drive time, and gasoline consumption.

How does ePlans work?

ePlans is accessed using any common Internet browser, such as; Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox (using a Flash viewer), in addition to Internet Explorer.

When a project application is submitted to one of our land development divisions (Planning, Development Services, or Building & Safety), and accepted, a secure project website is created. Project participants are invited to the ePlans project via email.

Project plans and documents are uploaded directly through the Internet browser using Microsoft Silverlight (download link is available, below).

When plan review is complete, comments are made available in the project site. Plans are approved electronically by the City and other participating agencies.

Getting Started in ePlans

Getting a project started in ePlans is simple.  It takes two steps to start the process:

  1. Download a building permit application from the Building & Safety webpage. They can be found under "Forms & Applications" or by clicking here.
  2. Email your complete application to Be sure to include the email addresses of everyone who should have access to the project in ePlans.

You will receive an email confirmation that your application has been received and an invoice for the required plan review fees with directions for making payment.  Within a week of receiving the confirmation, an email will be sent to the addresses listed on your application with an invitation to the ePlans system. Instructions on how to upload and submit plans and documents will be included.
