over 5 yearsBuilding Permits for Your Home
Whether replacing a window
or roof, remodeling your
kitchen or bathroom, adding
a new room or second story,
virtually every homeowner
at some point in time wants
to make chan ges to their
home. A building permit is
required for most – but not
all – construction projects.
In addition to promoting quality construction and safety standards, the
building permit process also promotes projects that are attractive, fit well
within a neighborhood, and maintain and support good property values.
We hope the following overview of the building permit process will assist
you in making your construction project a reality.
The process to obtain a building permit follows several basic steps:
1. Draw a site plan, or a floor plan (if doing interior work), and discuss your
project with the Planning Division. Building and Safety will not issue a
permit without proper approvals from a City Planner. Planning Division
counter hours are from 1-5 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
2. Confirm that you need a Building Permit. You can call the City’s Building
and Safety Division at 890-4286 to determine if your project needs a
3. Bring your Planning approved documents and construction drawings
to the Building Division counter at City Hall and submit them to the
Building Permit Technician or Building Official. For a small-to mediumsized
project, start out simple (i.e., hand-drawn plan); we’ll let you know
if something more needs to be done to make your plans suitable for
processing. Building and Safety counter hours are from 7-8 a.m. and
1-5 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
4. After your plans are reviewed and determined to be complete and “code
compliant”, they will be approved, a building permit will be issued, and
work may begin. ... Read more

Impacts to Your Local Services:
Last November Stanton voters approved Measure GG, a one-cent sales tax
that provides local funding for our community’s local city services. After years
of Sacrament o takeaways of our funds – totaling over $18 million – the City
now has a guaranteed local funding source to maintain essential services and
keep our community on the right track. All voter-approved funds are legally
required to stay in Stanton for local services and cannot be taken by the state.
While Measure GG only went into effect on April 1, 2015, it has already directly
impacted your local services and the new two-year budget the Stanton City
Council will adopt on June 23, 2015.
Maintaining Critical Local Services and
Preventing Millions in Cuts:
Voter-approved funding helped balance the City’s budget and has prevented
over $2 million in cuts to essential services the City was facing. Measure GG
has allowed us to maintain:
• Existing levels of fire protection services and firefighters
• Neighborhood police patrols and sheriff’s deputies
• 9-1-1 response times
• Gang and youth violence prevention programs
• Senior programs
• Economic development programs that attract new businesses to Stanton ... Read more
