Local Offices

Each of our regional offices is responsible for managing the projects, permits, and inspections in a given area. Permit applications, plan checks, and requests for inspections need to be made with the office responsible for the area in which the project is located. To determine which office is responsible for your project click on the following link Service Locator and enter the address or cross streets of your location. The look-up system will provide you with the name and address of the Building and Safety office responsible for that location. By clicking on the “Get Driving Directions” the site will map the route between your project and the Building and Safety Office that will manage the plan checks and/or permits you need.

If you know the general location of your project site you may find the office in question by looking on our interactive map of the county and clicking on the project area office flag. A pop-up of the office address and phone number will appear. For detailed office information click on the office link below.
