  • The plans must be approved before the work can start. Failure to comply shall result in citation and reporting to the CSLB.

Fees for Plan Review are best paid by setting up an account on with all transactions being digital.

Work may only commence after the plans have been approved and a copy of the approved plans are at the job site with the TFD stamped “Job Copy” in bold.

Failure to have Job Copy Approved plans onsite and the corresponding permit card will result in an automatic re-schedule and subsequent failure.  Fines may occur pursuant to the Fee schedule linked above.  All fines shall be paid before the next inspection shall commence.

All contractors should know that we always combine our permit with the building construction permit in accordance with Section 105.1.3 CFC. Special Event permits will be issued independently pursuant to CFC Section 105 and Ordinance 128.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact us for clarification or click here for Ordinance #128.
