Building & Safety
The Building and Safety Division ensures the safe occupancy of buildings by verifying construction compliance with regulated building and fire codes, and construction that is built in accordance with approved planning entitlements. Safety of building occupancy, compliance with entitlements through the public process, and customer service are the main focuses of the Division. Building and Safety operations include public counter permitting operations, plan check review and building inspection. The Division is consistent with the City’s environmentally-friendly and sustainable goals with its enforcement of energy and water conservation regulations, green building compliance and its paperless electronic plan check system.
