Check your eligibility

Have you already begun a permit application for a project in Orlando city limits? Before submitting your plans online, you must have already applied for a permit in the city.

Rename your files

Each drawing must follow a naming convention of “Page Type – Page Number” (For example, Cover-0001, Wall-0002 or Detail-0003) and must be submitted as one page per file. There is a five day delay in processing if file name conventions aren't followed.

Log into ProjectDox

After we process your application, you will receive an email from eplans@cityoforlando.net. The email will include a link to ProjectDox and will assign you with a temporary password. Use the email address you previously used to apply for your permit and your temporary password to log in.
