ePlan Review

The City’s electronic plan review solution allows permit applicants the ability to submit applications, pay plan check fees and upload electronic construction documents online for around the clock submission of plans to facilitate the review and approval process for conformance with City requirements prior to the issuance of a building permit. The system is designed as a cost-effective solution that streamlines the submittal process and routing of plans while saving customers time and money without printing costly construction documents and delivering them to City Hall throughout the plan check process.


With no need to purchase special software as only internet access is required, our system can accept over 250 file types and be updated and viewed from anywhere. Please carefully review the tutorial titled “ePlan Instructions” below for further information.

Questions regarding ePlan submittals may be directed to SJAlvarez@riversideca.gov or NBautista@riversideca.gov or by calling (951) 826-5697.

This solution is now available for both building plan checks and planning cases. The links to both applications are provided below:

  • Please note that all Initial building plan check or Planning submittals must first submit the appropriate application below.
  • Once your project application is received and processed, you will receive an email invitation with the next steps needed to create a user name and proceed with the electronic submission process
