Plan Review Process

The Building and Planning Divisions will review the plans and determine if your project is in compliance with State and local requirements. Many simple projects can be reviewed at the counter during your visit, while other projects may require up to three weeks to complete the first review. If your plans meet these requirements, a permit is issued. If code compliance issues are found, you will be provided with a correction list. The California Building Code requires that all projects, whether prepared and submitted by a property owner or by a design professional be reviewed by the Building Division for compliance with codes in effect.

Receive your Permit

Once you have been approved for a permit, you have legal permission to start construction. A permit fee, based on the size of the job, is collected to cover the cost of the plan review/approval/inspection process. Separate permits are required for electrical, plumbing, and heating or air-conditioning work.
