Follow-Up to WI SB187: How e-PlanSoft™ Helps Empower Municipalities

Follow-Up to WI SB187: How e-PlanSoft™ Helps Empower Municipalities

Wisconsin's recent legislative changes have reshaped the landscape of plan review authority for municipalities and private entities, courtesy of Senate Bill 187 (SB187). This bill has doubled the cubic feet threshold for projects eligible for local assessment from 50,000 to 100,000 cubic feet, significantly broadening the scope of projects falling under the jurisdiction of municipalities and private entities. 

SB187 has significant implications for delegated communities, including towns, cities, townships, and villages. These entities now possess the autonomy to conduct plan reviews that include an expanded cubic feet threshold. Delegated municipalities can benefit substantially, as they can now handle a broader range of projects without resorting to state-level review mechanisms.

However, alongside expanded authority come both opportunities and challenges. While municipalities and private entities may anticipate increased revenue generation through plan review fees, they must also modernize and adapt their processes to effectively manage the projected surge.

Automation emerges as a pivotal solution for streamlining and bolstering plan review workflows. Among the leading providers of electronic plan review software, e-PlanSoft™ stands out as a trusted ally for both the public and private sectors. Our solutions, exemplified in cities like Milwaukee, have consistently enhanced efficiency, precision, and efficacy in plan assessments, ultimately delivering time and cost savings for all stakeholders involved.
