Plan Submittals

We accept paper and electronic plans. Paper plans can be submitted at our San Bernardino, Rancho Cucamonga and Hesperia offices. Assistance with submittals and payment is available at the Rancho Cucamonga and Hesperia offices via our virtual assistant, Alice.

Electronic plans can be emailed to  Plans must be attached to the email in pdf format or accessible for download via link to a file-sharing service (e.g. Dropbox, etc.).  Starting July 1st, 2020, electronic submittals are eligible for a 5% discount.

Please provide a completed “Application for Plan Review” with paper and electronic submittals. Submittals may be subject to a preliminary review prior to intake. For all inquires, please contact Environmental Health Services.

We encourage applicants to use the “Preliminary Food Facility Checklist – Food Handling” and the “Preliminary Food Facility Checklist – Prepackaged” as a checklist to ensure that plans include the required information. Using the sheet will facilitate plan review, may reduce or eliminate the need for additional submittals and can prevent unnecessary delays in the review process.

We understand that your time is valuable, and we want to help accommodate your project’s timeline. Due to an increase in business development in San Bernardino County, field inspections may be scheduled several weeks from the date of your call. To schedule inspections at your earliest convenience, please contact EHS at 1 (800) 442-2283. We are here to help you and answer any questions you may have.
