City of Minnetonka Live on Electronic Plan Review
We are pleased to announce the City of Minnetonka is live using Electronic Plan Review!
As of September 2017, Minnetonka is offering plan review permits online using ePermits. Some time ago, only permits that did not require plan review were offered online, now cities have the opportunity to offer all permits online.
For permits that require a plan review, our PIMS software begins the process by allowing the applicant to apply for a permit online. Once submitted and fees are collected, a permit is created in PIMS. The permit has not been issued at this point, but a percentage of the permit fee can be collected upfront and subsequently subtracted from the total fee.
Next Step: Documents and drawings (plans) are submitted electronically by the applicant and reviewed by city staff for accuracy and proper orientation. All electronic plans can be reviewed by multiple departments within a city concurrently.
Once approved, an approved date will be transferred from the electronic plan review software to the PIMS system. This action will alert the applicant (via email) that the submitted plans for the permit have been approved, and final payment needs to be completed before the permit can be issued and approved plans can be downloaded.
Since going “Live” in September, Minnetonka has approximately 400 projects submitted online using ePermits and electronic plan review.
