County residents and businesses can now use “ePlans” and “ePermits” to apply online and electronically file plans to obtain electrical, deck, new home and right-of-way permits. Customers can do this from their homes or businesses – saving significant time, money, fuel and paper. Later this year, home additions and commercial plans and permits will be added.
Last year, DPS issued 4,339 permits for new homes and residential additions. In just two months this year, 35 percent of applications for new home permits have been submitted as ePlans and 50 percent of all electrical permits issued were ePermits.
