The Building Division enforces safety, health, welfare and property maintenance standards for both public and private development, and provides construction management oversight for public construction. It is divided into two sections: Building, and Building Construction.
Utilizing the California Building Codes, the Building Section is responsible for insuring that all private developments within the city conform to construction and safety standards through comprehensive plan review, permit issuance, and inspection. Proper compliance with approved plans is obtained through field inspections associated with this work.
Building Division forms can be printed out, filled in, and returned to the counter of the Building Division. These forms can be found here.
The Building Construction Section administers and oversees the application of California Public Contract Law and Standard Specifications for Public Works Construction to construct, remodel, and renovate City-owned buildings and structures.
