When City markups have been incorporated or resolved, city staff will notify the design engineer to coordinate with the developer to sign their portion of the City release stamp located on the cover sheet. The cover sheet is to be sealed and signed/dated by the Engineer of Record also. At this time, city staff will also issue a City File number. This number is different than the X number and is usually in the format of P-, SD-, W-, or SS- following by a number, for example "P-1692." The City File number should be placed near the lower right-hand corner of each sheet. The City File number is normally placed in two different places on the cover sheet.
The release of plans by city staff is based on general compliance, and does not approve or warrant the design, and does not relieve the Owner/Developer from any items discovered during construction which are deemed necessary to comply with Federal, State, or City ordinances and standards. The current City Standard Details at the time of release of the Public Works construction permit shall be used to ensure continuity of construction of public improvements.
