Welcome to the City of Goodyear’s new Electronic Plan Review (E-Review) process. 

E-Review is a web-based workflow solution that will allow Building, Engineering, and Planning applications to be submitted, reviewed, and approved electronically/online.  The enhanced capabilities of the ProjectDox software will allow for secure collaboration and mark-up of plans and also streamline and simplify the review process by improving communications between city staff and the applicant.

Standards allow for easy identification of drawings by naming convention in order to facilitate the most efficient review.

Standard markup names will be used for each reviewing department for easy identification. A markup can be one or more change-marks. Change-marks are created to quickly identify a markup and associated comments.


Additional Information: To be able to upload files, view files and download comments, you must have Active X Controls installed on your computer.
