Welcome to ePlans Santa Monica

ePlans offers flexibility to citizens, architects, and developers who collaborate with The City of Santa Monica on entitlement, engineering and construction plan sets and documents. In addition to enhancing customer service and communication, this online system offers financial benefits by reducing paper use, printing and storage costs, drive time, and gasoline consumption.
