Before you do anything else, you must check with the Planning Division to determine if a Design Review approval is required for your construction project.
If the Design Review is required, you will need to complete this process before submitting a Building Permit application. If a Design Review is not required you may submit your application to the Building Section.
For more information, contact the appropriate staff:
Building Inspection Requests - (626) 812-5234

Plan Review - (626) 812-5295
A plan review is a detailed review of construction drawings submitted by an applicant for compliance with state and local Building Codes prior to the issuance of a building permit.
A plan submittal and review is required in most cases. Contact the Building Division to see if your construction project will need plan review.
