Building Division

What We Do

The Building Safety Division is responsible for the building safety standards for the design, construction, use, and occupancy of all buildings and structures within the City of Laguna Beach.

Building Permits

The City has implemented our new permitting software called OpenGov PLC. You must create an account before accessing any project information or requesting inspections.

Whether you are undertaking a minor repair, remodel, complete renovation, or building a new home, you should check with us BEFORE you begin work. Most projects require a Building Permit and a staff review. 

Reviewing Property Documents and Plans

Files about property in Laguna Beach are part of the Public Record and can be viewed through our GIS System. You can search by property owner's name, property address, or parcel number.
