Instructions for Electronic Submittal

The goals of these instructions are to make a plan set easy to navigate for board and commission members, reduce the file size, and have a quality visual. Ideally, the entire submittal will be under 15MB.

1.  Arrange a way to deliver plan set to the planner
     (via an online program, email, CD, FTP site, or other method).

2.  Prior to exporting plans and renderings from architectural software (e.g. CAD)
     to desktop publishing software, reduce the file size of the plan set to the
     smallest size possible while retaining a quality visual and ability to scale plans.

3.  Do the following:

Public Hearing

Committee of the Whole/
Concept Review

Statement of use, findings, correspondence and other text

Project narrative and other text documents

Site plan
