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.
