Submittals/Resubmittals

Ensure you have all the required documents prior to uploading as insufficient submittals delay the review process. A few things to know about document requirements are:

  • Documents and plans are to be separated into the categories specified on the uploading page. Submittals received as one combined set of drawings will be returned to the applicant.
  • Documents must be to scale, PDF format, under 50MB, and named appropriately.
  • Sealed plans will need to be unlocked in order to allow markups.
  • Applicable documents will be stamped “Reviewed for Construction” at the conclusion of the review.
  • List of submittals for most typical applications.

 

To upload documents on the “Upload Files” page:

  • Step 1: Navigate down to the ‘Current Submittal – Submittal #1’ section.
  • Step 2: Drag and drop files into the appropriate category.
  • Step 3: Provide a brief description of the file.
  • Step 4: Relevant documents that do not fit in a submittal category can be uploaded in the ‘Upload Additional Documents’ section.

Resubmittals:

  • When additional information is required, documents may be returned to you for corrections to be made with details on a Corrections Notice letter.
  • Documents returned for correction should be saved as the same file name and uploaded to the same submittal type when all requested corrections have been completed.
  • The Portal is open to receive documents when the Application Status is:
    • Returned for Correction
    • Waiting for Resubmittal
    • Insufficient Submittal
  • Once the corrected documents are received by administration, the application will begin a second review.

Review Process

  • Log-in to CityView Portal and select the appropriate application under “My Items”. Scroll down to “Reviews” to access the visible review process along with the contact information of reviewers.
  • Standard review time is, on average, ten business days for complete applications.
  • Once all reviews are completed, you will be notified via email of the next action required.
  • If a review has a status of ‘Pending’ after ten business days, please contact the reviewer for an update.

Making Payment

A notification email will be sent to you when the application is ready to be paid. Online payment can be made with Visa or MasterCard at any time of day.
