The Building Division is charged with enforcement of Title 24: California Building Standards Codes which regulate the construction of all buildings and structures on private property, and all City owned buildings on city-owned property. The Building Division does not have jurisdictional authority for mobile home parks or public schools, which are regulated by the state of California. The Building Division also maintains publicly accessible permit records and copies of approved plans, as required by state law.
