Residents near the airport may notice fluctuations in air traffic activity because OMN has four runways pointing in different directions. Aircraft will use the runway that allows for the safest take off or landing. Aircraft generally need to take off and land into the wind, and smaller aircraft are more sensitive to wind conditions. Therefore, depending upon the direction and intensity of the wind on any given day, residents may not see a single plane overhead, and on other days they may see quite a few. The active runway for OMN is dictated by the direction of the wind along with the active runway at other airports in the area. Pilots flying into OMN will not be allowed to use an approach that would conflict with the approach being used at nearby airports, like Daytona Beach International Airport. Safety and aircraft separation are the air traffic controller’s main priorities.

In order to use ePlans, you will need to submit a Building Permit application or a Site Plan Review Application. As soon as you submit your notarized application and it has been reviewed for completeness, an ePlans project # will be created and you will get an Invitation email and an Applicant Upload Task email to proceed with your project. Building Permit applications can be submitted to BPonline@ormondbeach.org Site Plan Review applications can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
For non Internet Explorer users, such as Safari, Firefox or Chrome, you will need both Flash and Silverlight installed on your computer. As long as you have Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight installed on your computer, the system should work properly once you log in.
However, ePlans is optimized for use with Internet Explorer, so we do recommend using that browser for the best ePlans experience possible. We also have a link on the ProjectDox ePlans web page to a System Use Requirements manual. You may want to read through it for any useful hints for the type of system you are using.
However, if your plans need to be reviewed by agencies who are not using ePlans, you will have to take a hard copy to them for review. You will need to provide proof of their approval by uploading their approval signature or letter to the "Approved" folder in ePlans.
When your plans are approved by all departments, you will receive an email indicating that your plans are approved and after payment, they will be ready for download.
You will be responsible for printing out a set of plans for your job site.
However, the primary factors in the length of the plan review is the adherence to the submittal requirements, quality of the drawings, and the complexity of the project.
Plans, specifications, plats, reports, or other documents submitted in electronic format for review must be signed and sealed electronically pursuant to Florida Statutes Chapter 471.025, 481.221, and 668.001-006. Specifically, with reference to Florida Statutes Chapter 481 and Florida Administrative Rule 61G1-16.005 for Architects, or Florida Statutes Chapter 471 and Florida Administrative Code Rule 61G15- 23.003 (2) for Engineers. Scanned copies of signed and sealed documents are not an accepted electronic submittal method (See Subsection (1) of 61G15-23.003) There are many different accepted methods for digitally signing and sealing a plan using commonly accepted public / private key technology provided by various vendors. Some are listed on our ePlan web site. It is important that any method that is utilized be accompanied by a signed and sealed statement from the professional that the method and software that have been utilized to sign and seal the plans complies with the intent of the Board Rules. Plans examiners cannot approve plans without the appropriate Electronic Signature and Seal. This would be done through ProjectDox which is our electronic plan review software. Although the Florida Statutes cover electronic plan submittals and digital signatures, the city has broad home rule authority under Article VIII, Section 2 of the Florida Constitution and Chapter 166, Florida Statutes to regulate in many areas. Sections 166.222, 553.791 and 553.80 Florida Statutes specifically authorizes municipalities to provide a schedule of reasonable inspection fees in order to defer the costs of inspection and enforcement of building codes. In particular, section 553.80(7(a) as it relates to the enforcement by local governments of the building codes recognizes that the term enforcement includes the review of building plans, inspections, permit processing, etc. So, the city has broad home rule powers to establish an EPlans system as a means of deferring the costs associated with the submittal and review of plans, conducting inspections, etc.
