Building Permit Center

Building and construction-related matters are channeled through the Building Services Division, which is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of City and state codes relating to the construction, remodeling, alteration, repair and demolition of buildings and structures located within the City of Arcadia.

The purpose of such codes is to provide minimum standards to safeguard public safety, property, and welfare by regulating and controlling the numerous factors involved with development. To ensure that construction work complies with applicable codes, the City requires comprehensive plans for most types of projects and inspections are conducted at periodic stages of the work.

City staff strives to provide quick and accurate construction project plan review and permit issuance services and will do everything possible to assist you in processing your application. Although staff does not provide design services, the City provides technical handouts and interprets codes to assist you in obtaining approval and permits for your project. 

Plan Check Process

For additional assistance, please contact the Building Services Division at (626) 574-5416.
