The first step in obtaining a building permit is for a resident or applicant to contact the City to learn what kind of application and what submittals are necessary. This can be done either by calling (408) 868-1240 or by visiting the counter at City Hall. The counter is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm (close from 12:00 - 1:00 pm).
If a building permit is required, submittals must be done in person to the Building department.
To view building permits for a particular property, visit the City's E-trakit site.
