To improve customer service to those seeking project permits in Oakland, our 2nd floor Planning & Building Counters are being re-organized.

Here's what to know during the transition:

  • To receive the fastest and most efficient customer service for submitting and receiving permits at the Building Counter, we encourage customers to make an appointment with a Process Coordinator (see list below).
  • We are unable to make same-day appointments for major projects or multiple addresses.
  • All required documentation must be submitted during intake with the Process Coordinator. Any applications with missing documents will not be accepted.
  • Cancellations for appointments must be made at least 24 hours prior to the appointment time to avoid cancellation fees assessed to the project.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact one of the following Process Coordinators:
