Development Project Review Goes Electronic - ePlan


Effective October 1, 2018, the Augusta, Georgia Government, in collaboration with the Richmond County Health Department, is launching a new process for the submission, review and approval of development projects.  As part of the Augusta’s "Going Green" initiative, electronic plan (ePlan) review replaces the  traditional paper-based process for submitting development projects, such as land subdivisions (Development Plans), Final Plats, and Site Plans (and including, but not limited to, other development-related projects, such as grading and erosion and sedimentation only plans & right-of-way abandonments).

ePlan and "going green” has multiple benefits to all individuals involved in the plan review process that include:

  • costs production of paper plans will be reduced
  • trips to Planning and Development to drop off plan submittals and resubmittals (or shipping plans to Planning and Development) will be almost totally eliminated
  • P&D staff time for plan distribution to the various reviewing departments will be drastically reduced
  • efficiencies will be created externally in communication to the design engineers and their developers on plan review status and required plan review revisions for resubmittal (as applicable) 
  • a central repository will be created for all plan review comments, and
  • most important of all, the plan review process will be greatly streamlined!

For more information on the process and how it could impact a development project, please contact Augusta Planning & Development at 706-821-1796 or visit online for more details.
