BDS Service Updates


"Interim Review" Process Name Change to "Single PDF"

BDS will now refer to the applicant upload process as “Single PDF” instead of “Interim Review.”

 BDS "Interim Review" Process Name Change to "Single PDF"

Good afternoon,
 
The Bureau of Development Services will now refer to the applicant upload process as “Single PDF” instead of “Interim Review.”  
 
BDS pivoted quickly after the Mayor’s State of Emergency to start accepting more types of plans via ProjectDox. Currently, applicants can submit Process Managed Permits and projects via ProjectDox for limited plan review processing. This includes New Single Family Residences (NSFR) and demolition permits. For the first few months, we referred to this process as “Interim Review” or “ProjectDox Limited.” We initially thought the “Interim Review” process would be temporary, but we will not be limiting our intake ability as we move forward, only expanding our ability to take in more plans for review.
 
We are now using “Single PDF” review to refer to the applicant upload process. The terms “PDox Limited” and “Interim Review Process” are being retired.

Thank you for your cooperation and help in making this transition!
 
Please let us know if you have any questions.

BDS Fee Change Update

Prior to the spread of COVID-19, BDS had intended to propose fee changes taking effect July 1, 2020. However, due to COVID-19 and its impact on the local economy, BDS has decided not to pursue fee changes at this time. These changes will be delayed until further notice, once economic conditions have stabilized.

Raising fees at this time would put undue burden on our customers at a time when many individuals and businesses are struggling. BDS does not want to create additional financial burden at a time of such economic uncertainty.

Please see the website for current fee schedule information for BDS and our interagency partners, and for future updates to the fee schedules.
