Submit documents and plans electronically

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


Single-family Homes and Duplexes

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

  • 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.


Commercial and Multifamily Building Permits or Simultaneous Building & Zoning Permits

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.
  • 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).

Fire Permits

Site Development Plans (SDP) and Sewer Use & Drainage Permits (SUDP) only
