  • Permit Center - Plan Submittal Checklists

    PlansTo assist customers with the plan review process, we have listed our most common plan review project submittal checklists.  Download these files below.

    Each checklist is organized by type of drawing or supplemental information required, and which department/division needs to review it.  Some of the boxes have specific notations in them, implying that a specific piece of information is only required if your project meets the details in the box.  If an X is in the box, than that piece of information is indeed required.  You can count up the number of sets required for submittal once you have determined which departments/divisions need to review your project.  

    Submitting the correct number of plans is vital, as we will only accept projects for plan review that have all the required plan sets.

    If you have any questions interpreting the plan submittal requirements, please call the department listed for assistance. The numbers are listed under the  Services Directory.

    Please note that certain projects may be required to comply with Storm Water Pollution Prevention Regulations (SUSMP), Construction and Demolition Recycling Regulations and Construction Staging and Traffic Management Plan Requirements.  Download the requirements below. 

    If your project meets these thresholds, then you will be required to submit this information at the initial plan check phase.

  • Important Notice Regarding the 2010 California Building Code (CBC)

    If you are an architect, engineer, designer or contractor that performs work within the State of California, please be advised that a new building code will take effect on January 1, 2011.  The new building code is based on the 2009 International Building Code (IBC).

    There will also be a new California Residential Code and a California Green Building Standards Code that are both new to California and are significantly different than the current CBC.

     All plan review applications submitted after December 31, 2010 will be required to comply with the new code. The 2011 CBC, CRC and CAL Green Codes will be available for purchase directly from the International Code Council, at www.iccsafe.org.

    All designers and contractors will need to participate in training before the new codes take effect. Training classes are available through the following organizations:


    • General training related to all I-Codes
    • California amendment training
