Private Development and Bond Finance

Private Development projects typically include a new development or change in the use of a property. The City requires improvement projects to provide illumination to the impacted area, via a B-permit. As part of ePlanLA, the Bureau began providing permit plan review services online via ProjectDox in 2019. This new online application process eliminates paper use and the need for customers to apply in person at multiple city offices. It has increased accuracy and efficiency during the plan review and approval process. Further, it enables customers or departments to determine application status as needed. The Bureau continues to develop tools to enhance permitting services and the user experience for our customers.
