Buildings Department's New Online Permit Review System Launches on Nov. 18th | Chicago Association of REALTORS®

The Buildings Department is unveiling a new and improved E-Plan (online permit review) system at 11 PM on Sunday, November 18th.

The E-Plan system will be disabled from 4:30 PM on Friday November 16th through 11 PM on Sunday, November, 18th as the program is being upgraded.

Once back on-line, the system will have a brand new look, with upgrades made to the performance, uploading process, task completion steps, project lists and the search and filter tool.

Don’t worry: user IDs, passwords and basic functions will remain the same.

Hurry! If you haven’t already, sign up to one of four remaining free, in-person training sessions to better understand all of the updates that have been made to make the permit process quicker and smoother than before.
