How do I obtain a Building Permit?
The Building Division section of the Economic and Community Development Department issues building permits for both new and remodeled home and business construction. Permit fees are based on the type of work and the size of the construction job.

Permits are issued at the Permit Center Service Counter in the City Hall Annex from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm with the exception of Wednesdays when the counter closes at 3:30 pm.

Before applying for a permit, make a rough plan of your project. The rough plan should include the dimensions of your lot, the size of your house, and the location of your planned addition. City staff will review this plan before you submit formal plans to be checked by the City’s Building Division.

For permit information, call (650) 829-6670.
