ProjectDox (ePLANS)- Electronic Plan Review

Please note that the City of Carmel will be updating our electronic plan review software, ProjectDox, to a newer version.
The upgrade will begin 5:00 pm on December 8th.
The system will be unavailable until the morning of the 9th.

DOCS is now paperless and only accepts plans to review electronically. ProjectDox is the City’s software that allows staff to review plans online. This software is a part of the Building Permit process as well as the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA), Plan Commission, and Sign Permit process. If you have questions about these application processes, please see the links below.
