Permit Center


    During this unprecedented time, the Town’s role is to maintain the health and well-being of the community while providing permitting services that are in compliance with the Contra Costa Health Order (the “Order”).  All construction projects and activities are now allowed, provided that they comply with ‘construction project safety protocols.’ Please review the Permitting Services During Shelter-In-Place, which includes Frequently Asked Questions.
