Pre-Applications for Building Permits Available Online During COVID-19
Effective March 26, 2020, the City of Palo Alto’s Planning and Development Services Department is accepting online pre-applications for building permits.
Pre-applications can be filed online here.
The Energy Reach Code Ordinance, which requires “All-Electric” designs for all new low-rise residential projects, takes effect on April 1, 2020. This pre-application process will allow applicants to submit their projects before the new code takes effect.
For additional information regarding the pre-application submittals, please contact Development Center at (650) 329-2496 and press 1.
