Delivers environmental review services, and supports the Planning Commission and Public Arts Commission.

PERMITTING SERVICES DURING COVID-19:
The health and safety of the general public and City employees is our primary concern. City services have been modified in order to provide a safer environment, while maintaining all our basic services during the pandemic.

Effective Monday, April 14, 2020, the following precautionary measures have been implemented in the best interest of the public’s health and welfare:

City services have been modified in order to limit “face-to-face” interactions and to provide a safer environment, while maintaining all our basic services.

The Permit Center counter will be closed to the public.  Applications for Building Permits and Planning Approvals, and Site Plan-SAMPLE form can be downloaded below and may be submitted electronically during normal business hours.  Payment of permits is done remotely by check or credit card. After submitting an application, City staff will call the owner/contractor to EITHER make an appointment to pick up the permit / approved plans / inspection card, OR to have these delivered to the construction site.  

Inspections will be scheduled through the normal procedure, and we ask that areas to be inspected be clear of immediate human congregation.  Our staff is available by telephone at (760)398-3002 or (760) 398-3102 or by e-mail at ybecerril@coachella.org and rmontoya@coachella.org.
