Engineering Department

The Engineering Department is accepting all Site Improvement Permit and Encroachment Permit submittals electronically. This allows the Engineering Department to determine if the submittal is complete and the type of permit or if a permit is required.  The actual review time does not commence until we have accepted the plan review fee. In consideration of Social Distancing and to ensure accurate submittals for Site Improvement Permit and Encroachment Permit submittals, please complete the following:

1.       Make a complete electronic submittal to [email protected]
          This must be in conformance with NAC 625.610.10 and all pdf documents
          must be flattened and bookmarked;

2.       Engineering Staff will review and respond to your electronic submittal with
          any required plan review fees and hard copies that may be required;

3.       For “Re-submittals” submit electronic file(s) to [email protected].

4.      The Case Engineer will coordinate with you on any hard copies that may be
          required with the resubmittal.

5.       Our counter hours still apply and these submittals will be considered
          Monday-Friday 8 am to 4 pm.
