Inspections Field Revisions
The Field Revision Process applies when changes in the field occur after the City has issued permits for a project.
Modifications to a plan must be presented to the City field inspector managing the project. The field inspector can approve the changes in the field or require them to go through another plan review. A field inspector may refer project changes to a field supervisor for a decision.
If changes cannot be approved in the field, the field inspector or field supervisor signs a Field Revision Form (commercial) or (residential) stating why the changes are being sent back for review and which trades need to review these changes. The applicant takes this form and the revised plans along with any additional documents (see submittal requirements) to the Development Services Customer Service Center for plan routing.
A permit must have been issued and be currently active in order to apply for a field revision.
Approvals or Permits Issued
Approval of a revised plan by the field inspector or office staff is given. No permits are issued.
