File Project and Supplemental Applications for Planning entitlements online
San Francisco Planning is pleased to announce that Project Applications and Supplemental Applications for Planning entitlements can be filed and paid for online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via our Accela Citizen Access public portal.
Only new projects seeking an entitlement from the Planning Department are eligible to file Project Applications and Supplemental Applications online. Building Permit Applications that do not require an entitlement should continue to submit plans in person. Please contact your project planner for development projects previously submitted to Planning.
The following features are now available:
- You can file multiple required Supplemental Applications (e.g., CUA, VAR) when submitting a new Project (PRJ) Application.
- Supplemental Applications available online include AHB, CUA, COA, CTZ, DNX, ENX, OFA, PTA, SHD, TDM, and VAR.*
- Payment methods include Credit Card or E-Check. Our Fee Schedule can be found here.
- Online applications that are not completed and paid for within 7 days will be removed from the public portal.
Again, New Project (PRJ) Applications required for Building Permit Applications cannot be filed online at this time.
