News Release
Clark County's ePlan review system goes live today, Sept. 19 - 09/19/22

Vancouver, Wash. – Clark County Community Development has been working to implement an electronic plan review program which will went live today, Sept. 19. 

Now that the go live is complete, the county will only receive electronic applications and plans. Hard copies will no longer be accepted. This will apply to new applications. However, paper applications currently in the system will continue to be processed as is. 

The new ePlan system will allow applicants to submit building and development plans electronically as opposed to physically taking them to the county’s Permit Center. With ePlans, both the applicant and permit staff can access review status and comments in real time. 

For a new residential or commercial development project there can be numerous plans to review including construction, transportation, stormwater, engineering standards and environmental. 

Permit staff developed the tag line, Saving trees and parking fees for the project. “Our goal is to improve all aspects of the permitting process, making it faster and easier while still adhering to code and safety regulations in Clark County,” said Community Development Director April Furth.

Benefits of the new system include:

  • Reduction of paperwork, file management and plan scanning
  • Efficient information exchange between staff and customers
  • Increased access to plans in the field which improves inspection services
  • Ability to review plans concurrently with other programs

For more information on the ePlan review system visit the county’s website at www.clark.wa.gov/eplan. CVTV recently featured the ePlan review system in this Clark County Close Up video.
