Architects, Engineers, or Surveyors cannot submit and our agency cannot process permits for new projects which have not yet commenced construction, unless the drawings were completed, and signed and sealed by all engineers, architects or surveyors prior to the date the Emergency Order became effective.

Notwithstanding the above mentioned, our agency will continue to accept new ePermit applications for Residential re-roofs, windows/doors replacements, Residential A/C Changeouts, standard wood or chain link fences or vinyl fencing with an NOA and any other permit our applications that do not require a Licensed Architect, Professional Engineer or Surveyor. i.e electrical service changes drafted and notarized by a certified electrical contractor.
