ANSWER:
Yes, a building permit is required to enlarge or alter any dwelling including an attached patio. Depending on the scope of work electrical, mechanical, or grading permits may also be required. Please contact the La Puente Building and Safety Office at the address indicated below if you have further questions.

It is recommended you speak to a representative of the Department of Regional Planning assigned to the La Puente District Office to determine any zoning requirements that may affect the design of your proposed work.
