    Notes:

    *The Owner-Builder Verfication form is not required if the applicant is a California licnensed contractor.

    **California law requires smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to be present at all required locations, and to be verified at the time of building permit inspection of any alteration requiring a building permit.  The applicant must fill out the Smoke / CO Detector Self-Certification form and present this form to the Building Inspector in order to final the permit.

    Please note that based on the project specifics, our staff may request additional information prior to issuing the permit.

    All completed electronic forms required for the respective permits must be uploaded to the eTRAKiT permit form under the "Attachments" section.
