Deciphering the “Reference File Name”
Not all Case Types and SubTypes are listed below-only the most commonly searched.
Formats below apply to the number in the Reference File Name column of the online record.
For queries, you may use the % symbol as a wild card anywhere in the number, as many times, particularly at the end of the prefix and at the very end of the case number. There are too many variations to list here.
For Descriptions of document images (under Folder Attachments): the ~### refers to Sheet # of the applicant’s drawings that have been scanned and posted online. Please read Sheet ~001 to see the index of sheets. Any (#) notation following the Sheet # refers to a modified sheet, and the highest (#) of any page is the latest revision of that page.
Case numbers prior to March 2007 may denote the year in two digits rather than four digits (example, C14 - 04 - 0001 rather than C14-2004 - 0001).
SMART Housing suffix .SH (example C14-2012-0001.SH or SP- 2012 -0001.SH) may be attached to various types of cases: Zoning, Subdivision, Site Plan, etc.
