Find your project type below for instructions on how to submit online or by email:

To log in a residential project, email all materials and plans to PlanReview@denvergov.org.

  • For large files that cannot be sent as attachments, email a link to Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. where staff can download the files. The documents must be available to download without a password.
  • Download the Residential Permitting Guide (PDF) for application forms and checklists (or the Master/TA guide for production homes). Do not apply separately to SUDP -- instead, include a utility site plan showing size, type, and location of water, storm sewer, and sanitary sewer lines (and any other SUDP plans/documents specific to your project) with your building submittal. Both reviews will run concurrently.
  • Save all files as PDFs and name them as follows: DocumentName_Address_Date.pdf (e.g., SitePlan_201WColfax_11-1-2017.pdf)
  • As with paper submittals, all plans, reports, surveys, etc. prepared by an architect, engineer, or surveyor must bear their seal and signature. Learn how to apply a valid electronic signature (PDF). The electronic signature must be visible on the plan cover page and the seal must be visible on each sheet.

Resubmittals

These also go to the PlanReview inbox -- not to your reviewer. You cannot resubmit hard copies for a project initially submitted by email, and vice versa.

NOTE: Email submittals will log in your project for review. For smaller projects that are eligible for a same-day permit and do not need to be logged in for review, visit the Single-family/Duplex Walk-through Counter.


To log in a commercial/multifamily project, email all materials and plans to PlanReview@denvergov.org.

  • For large files that cannot be sent as attachments, email a link to Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. where staff can download the files. The documents must be available to download without a password.
  • Download the Commercial Building Permit Guide (PDF) for application forms and checklists. Do not apply separately to SUDP -- instead, include a utility site plan showing size, type, and location of water, storm sewer, and sanitary sewer lines (and any other SUDP plans/documents specific to your project) with your building submittal. Both reviews will run concurrently.
  • Save all files as PDFs and name them as follows: DocumentName_Address_Date.pdf (e.g., SitePlan_201WColfax_11-1-2017.pdf)
  • As with paper submittals, all plans, reports, surveys, etc. prepared by an architect, engineer, or surveyor must bear their seal and signature. Learn how to apply a valid electronic signature (PDF).

New! The SUDP application process has been combined with electronic building permit applications for a more streamlined submittal process and faster review times for many SUDP customers.

  • All SUDP reviews will now start automatically when a building permit application is received at PlanReview@denvergov.org (using the instructions above). At a minimum, please include a utility site plan showing the size, type, and location of water, storm sewer, and sanitary sewer lines (and any other SUDP plans/documents specific to your project) with your building plans to ensure a timely review. Do not submit separately to SUDP.
  • Resubmittals, SUDP-only reviews for projects that do not need building permits, and SUDP plans submitted after logging in paper plans at the counter can continue to be emailed to wastewaterpermits@denvergov.org.

  • Visit the commercial zoning webpage to download permit applications and guides for what plans need to be submitted with your application.

Use e-permits to apply for fire permits from the Denver Fire Department (e.g., fire suppression, low voltage & fire alarm, CO2 system install, etc.). 

  1. Go to www.denvergov.org/epermits. Familiarize yourself with the tutorials on the page and then enter the e-permits system.
    • New users: Register for an account.
    • Licensed contractors: Once your account is created, go to Account Management to add your contractor’s license to your e-permits account. You will then be able to quickly view your permits under Home > My Records.
  1. Go to the Development Services tab > Apply for a Permit.
  2. Select the appropriate fire permit from the list and follow the prompts.

Resubmittals/Approved Plans:

If you need to submit additional information during plan review, go back to the Development Services tab in e-permits and search for your project, either by record number or address. Once on the correct record, go to Record Info > Attachments to add new documents.

Make sure to hit “save” after uploading new/revised documents.

Approved plans will be available to download on the Attachments screen once the review is complete.


PLEASE NOTE: e-plan (the EFT site) is no longer available. If you need access to project files saved in e-plan, please email development.services@denvergov.org. Online submittals have moved to e-permits. Keep reading for instructions on uploading documents through e-permits.

To resubmit plans for projects initially submitted via email or the old e-plan/EFT site, email Development.Services@denvergov.org with the email address associated with your e-permits account and the projects where you would like to resubmit. You will receive a confirmation email verifying that your e-permits account has been associated with the projects. Then, follow the above instructions.
