ATTENTION: Winter Holiday Closure / 2022 Building Code Standards 

The City of Palo Alto’s Development Center will be closed from December 24, 2022 through January 2, 2023 in observance of the winter holidays. The Development Center will reopen on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 at 8:30 AM. 

Online Applications:
Due to the City-wide winter holiday closure and application processing time required, all online development services applications (Building, Planning, Fire, and Public Works) will be accepted until 5:00 PM on Friday, December 16, 2022. 

The State of California and City of Palo Alto adopted the 2022 California Code of Regulations, Title 24 (2022 California Building Code Standards), which will become effective on January 1, 2023. To qualify under the 2019 California Building Code Standards, all new instant building permit applications and building permit pre-applications must be submitted by the date above. Once a pre-application is received, a staff member will contact the applicant to determine application completeness and provide a notification for plan review fee payment. These fees must be paid online before 5:00 PM on December 23, 2022. Please be advised that due to an anticipated high volume of applications, plan review timelines may be extended through February 2023. Staff will make every effort to review permits as expeditiously as possible and provide ongoing communications with applicants. 

Building Inspection Services:
During the winter holiday closure, the City will be providing limited building inspection services. Inspection requests must be received and confirmed before the office closure occurs on December 24th. To request an inspection, please download our mobile application (Palo Alto iRequest) to your smart device or search for your permit and schedule an inspection below.

We wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to working with you in the new year.
