ePlans Submittal & Fees

Welcome to the Department of Planning and Development online payment system! This system will allow for both standard paper review as well as electronic submittals through our e-plans system. To begin the process:
  • Choose the type of case below and choose "Pay for Fee" or "Apply".
  • A formal application (See Applications & Checklists), separate from the pre application, must be uploaded to ePlans once staff has created a record for the proposed project.
  • Wait for a “pre-screen complete” email from the City of Springfield with instructions for our review process.
  • To pay for any fees due after an application has been submitted, go to Pay Fees Due.
The City of Springfield is accepting all projects through the ePlans digital submittal review system. Please refer to the User Guide (PDF) for details on how to submit a project using the ePlans electronic review system.

The ePlans system offers an enormous benefit to the design professional community, clients and citizens. Unlike the current paper system, ePlans allows for several cost and time saving efficiencies, including:
  • Submission of plans electronically, from the convenience of your office, 24 hours, 7 days a week
  • Simultaneous review of the plans by all professional and trade disciplines
  • City reviewer mark-ups are made on a separate layer of the plans to provide correction, direction, and clarity
  • Resubmission of corrected plans electronically from the convenience of your office
  • Reduced printing and transportation cost, and
  • Real time return of your approved plans, once the fees are paid.
