The Bureau of Engineering Development Services and Permits Program continues to offer virtual appointments and has also implemented limited In-Person service at the downtown Development Services Center (201 N. Figueroa St), by appointment only through the BuildLA's Appointment System.

In accordance with the Safer LA Order and Los Angeles Municipal Code, Section 200.123, customers visiting City buildings will need to:

  1. 1. Always wear a well-fitted face mask within City facilities
  2. 2. Have a COVID-19 vaccination card/confirmation available for staff verification
  3. 3. Present current and valid Photo Identification

July 6, 2021 Update:

As of July 6, 2021, the Bureau of Engineering (BOE) joined the Angeleno Account initiative so that customers can use one login to access all City services.

Excavation (U) Permit customers and Maintenance Hole Opening (MH) Permit customers are excluded from using the Angeleno Account at this time. Please continue to use your existing login.

June 15, 2021 Update:

The Bureau of Engineering Development Services and Permits Program will continue to only operate as online services, in addition to the "Drop-off/Pick-up" system, until the City of Los Angeles announces a reopening date for in-person services.
