Even during these difficult times, the City of Los Alamitos is committed to
providing our residents with exceptional customer service. Commencing on April 1, 2020, we will now accept electronic plan submittals for building plan check services.

The new Electronic Permit Center will allow customers to submit a plan check application and upload their documents online. In addition, a new web-based plan software has been incorporated, which will facilitate
concurrent plan check review by any department, which will in turn reduce the overall turnaround time.

In addition to reducing paper costs, the new Electronic Permit Center will be open 24-hours a day, allowing building projects to be submitted at any time, from anywhere. This added convenience will allow architects, contractors and homeowners to realize additional cost savings by reducing the number of trips to City Hall.

Other online services offered includes:

  • Inquiries and/or activities that necessitate planning approval can be discussed with Associate Planner Tom Oliver via email at [email protected] or at (562) 431-3538 extension 303.

For more information on the new Electronic Permit Center, please call (562) 431-3538 extension 302 or email [email protected].
