A building permit is required for projects such as new construction, additions, tenant improvements, pools, spas, signs, remodeling, and work on to electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems.
Please remember: work started before a building permit is issued will be subject to a penalty fee.
As a part of the Sacramento Streamline initiative we now offer California licensed contractors the ability to pull minor permits online and schedule inspections online.
