The initial plan review is the first review of the building, electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems that city staff does to ensure that those systems are in compliance. When necessary, revisions are submitted and re-reviewed until the plans fully comply with the applicable codes, state laws and federal laws. Prompt and predictable plan reviews are an exceptional customer experience that allow our developers to plan projects and help make Fort Worth an attractive place to do business, thus growing the tax base and improving the community.

The plan review times are improving. During the 2019 FY the plan review team had to hire four new plans examiners; along with making adjustments for the implementation of the XTEAM. Training and new processes are in work that should continue to improve the review times. For FY 2019 the goal of 95% was not met due to training of new staff and turnover.
