Applying for a permit is the first step in the process. To access permit applications, please visit the Permits and Handouts page
. For most projects, you will need to submit the following items:
- Applicable fee(s)
- Site plan
- Three (3) sets of plans, minimum size 18 by 24 inches
- A written description of the work to be completed
Your plans may also require review by other departments within the City, such as Public Works or Planning, and/or outside agencies such as the County Health Department or the Orange County Fire Authority.
A permit is approved based on the plans you submit, which means that once plans are approved, you are required to build the project to the specifications in those plans. If any changes are made to the plans, they must be made with the City's approval, otherwise the permit may become invalid.
