POLICY DURING THE COVID-19 DECLARED EMERGENCY
Beginning Tuesday, October 6, 2020, the One Stop Shop will reopen to the public with limited capacity, modified working hours, and safe practices in place as we continue to provide development services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The One Stop Shop will open to the public from 10 am to 2 pm, Monday through Friday, through October 30, 2020.
Beginning November 2, 2020, the One Stop Shop will open to the public in an expanded capacity from 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday, except Wednesdays from 10 am to 4 pm. Based on customer demand and volume, the One Stop Shop hours may vary and we encourage you to call ahead.
Please allow additional time to process applications as we continue working with a reduced work force in place and limited customer capacity to maximize safe practices in the workplace.
Beginning October 8, 2020, customers are highly encouraged to submit permit applications, make payments, monitor project status and complete the plan review process remotely using the new Public Permit Portal. We encourage you to call our One Stop Shop with any questions before visiting City Hall in person. Stay safe, save time, and save money utilizing the City’s online resources and avoid the possibility of long wait times for service in the One Stop Shop.
For customers choosing to visit the One Stop Shop, please note the following conditions apply to ensure a safe environment for all:
- Customers must wear appropriate face coverings while visiting City Hall
- Customer temperature checks are mandatory before entering the One Stop Shop
- Only one customer per project will be permitted in the One Stop Shop to ensure appropriate social distancing. Exceptions: One parent and a child, a non-Spanish speaking translator is needed, or one person assisting a disabled patron
- A maximum customer limit has been implemented in the One Stop Shop lobby with a designated overflow waiting area outside of the ground floor lobby entrance in the plaza, as needed.
- EXISTING ENTITLEMENT PROJECT RESUBMISSIONS: Entitlement application resubmittals will be accepted in person or in electronic format through a OneDrive link. Please contact your Case Planner who will provide you with assistance for your specific project(s).
- NEW ENTITLEMENT PROJECT SUBMISSIONS: New entitlement applications are highly encouraged to submit in electronic format through our Preliminary Application on-line. As an alternative, paper format applications may be submitted per the paper plan submittal policy or at the One Stop Shop. Following your initial submission, a Case Planner will be assigned and can help you with your application.
Please note: All projects with entitlement expirations up to the end of the Emergency Declaration will have expiration dates extended 180 days to ensure they remain valid as we continue to work through this crisis. This does not include maps subject to the Subdivision Map Act.
