The Building and Safety Office conducts plan checks, issues building permits and inspects residential, commercial and industrial structures under construction. Staff enforces the California Building Code and other building codes adopted by the City. They also investigate and respond to complaints and building code violations. The building and Safety Office maintains a telephone-based inspection request system that provides next-day inspection service. Personnel will provide same-day inspections where an inspection is urgently needed and inspectors are available. In unusual cases, where there is a serious and urgent life-safety concern, inspections are provided any time they are needed including nights, weekends and holidays.
