The Building Division is mandated by State Law 17960 (Health & Safety Code) to be responsible for monitoring construction activity, and to determine that any ongoing construction project has the required permits and conforms to the approved plans, and any conditions of approval. 

To meet these goals and effectively provide our citizens with the best quality service possible, the Building & Safety Division is comprised of three functionally separate, but closely related sections:
