A "B" Permit may be issued for either design or construction, or a single permit can be issued for both design and construction. These permits cover plan check engineering, installation of traffic control devices, inspection, testing during construction, and maintenance of street trees.
"B" Permits are most frequently issued for public works improvements adjacent to land being developed. In these instances, the extent and type of improvements depend on conditions imposed by the Council, City Engineer, Department of City Planning, or some other jurisdictional body in accordance with the Municipal Code, City Charter, State Law, or City Ordinance.
To obtain a "B" permit, please contact your local District Office.
Information about the location of underground utilities, as well as construction standards, are obtained at the District Office permit counter. Additionally, excavation and shoring plans are approved and permits needed to commence work immediately adjacent to public Right-of-Ways are issued at this counter. Should special insurance or bonds be required to be posted in connection with the project, these transactions may also be handled at the permit counter.
To obtain an Excavation permit, please contact your local District Office.
There are two types of sewer connection:
1. Property Line Connection: (requires Building & Safety inspection)
This may be a new connection or reconnection to a house connection sewer located at the property line.
2. Main Line Connection: (requires Public Works inspection)
This type of connection is required when the house connection sewer extending to the property line does not exist. To extend a sewer line from the property line to the City's main sewer, a bonded sewer contractor must perform the work.
To obtain a Sewer permit, please complete the online application or contact your local District Office.
