Building Change Approvals

Interior Changes
If you wish to make interior building improvements please contact the Building Division at 562-383-4116 to determine if building permits are needed. Typically, if you are using the building as-is with just furniture being moved in, no building permit is required. Should you wish to alter, add, or remove a wall, building permits will be required. Changes to the electrical, plumbing, and mechanical system will more than likely require a permit.

Exterior Changes

Should improvement be planned for the exterior portion of the building or property, please contact the Planning Division for confirmation that the improvements will not result in a Zoning Code violation. We are here to assist you so please feel free to contact us with any questions. We would much rather discuss with you plans for your business, how to address challenges, and get you in operation with the least amount of time and cost at the outset of the project.
