Issues accessing converted plans/documents

If you began your project before October 21 and are experiencing issues accessing your converted plans and documents in PLUS or are receiving an error, please complete this PLUS Records Customer Issues form.

Some data was corrupted during the conversion from ProjectDox to PLUS and some workflows did not transfer properly. We are aware of these issues and are working to resolve them as soon as possible.

Trouble printing RUP and NonRUP Certificates

Some customers are not able to see or print their RUP/NonRUP certificates. Until this issue is fixed in PLUS, please email and staff will email your Record Summary. Your Record Summary which shows completed inspections can be used to satisfy occupancy requirements.

RPA/WRPA/WQIA Plan Submitter Requirements

RPA, WRPA and WQIA plans presently require a licensed surveyor or engineer to submit past the license verification step of a new application. Anyone may submit these plans, and staff will review to ensure that licensed professionals have prepared necessary parts of the plans where and when required. Email to initiate an application if you are unable to do so yourself due to not being a licensed engineer or surveyor.
