Food Plan Check
To slow the transmission of COVID-19, the Department of
Environmental Health (DEH) will be temporarily closing all public
lobby spaces effective Friday, March 20th. To ensure
our customer’s needs are being met, DEH will be going to a virtual
business process until further notice.
The Plan Check and Construction unit is responsible for reviewing the plans of new food establishments, existing food establishments that are being remodeled, and mobile food facilities such as vending vehicles and pushcarts. If you have questions regarding pool plan check, please visit our pool plan check program.
The Food Plan Check New Construction Guide will assist in the construction of your establishment. Also each and every plan submittal must include the required "health notes". There are a variety of guidelines on plan check related topics below.
