Permits are the way the City of Glendora regulates construction and protects the public by reducing the potential hazards of unsafe construction. They are designed to ensure that all construction in the city is safe and meets construction codes. These construction codes, whose purpose is to promote safety and code compliance, are published by several internationally respected model code agencies and have been adopted by the City of Glendora Municipal Code. Additionally, there are federal, state and local laws that govern construction, such as those covering energy conservation.

- When do you need a building permit?
Any owner or authorized agent who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system, the installation of which is regulated by this code, or to cause any such work to be done, shall first make application to the building official and obtain the required permit.
- Who can obtain a building permit?
Any property owner or authorized agent, such as a licensed contractor can obtain the required permits.
- Can I obtain a building permit online?
Although the City is working towards securing simple permits (such as electrical service change outs, water heater changeouts and copper repipes), online, we are not at that point yet. Call the Building Division (626) 914-8222 or check back on the website for update information.
- How long does it take to get a building permit?
Minor projects such as roofing, HVAC, minor electrical or plumbing work do not require plans and permits can usually be issued over the counter. We also offer 'Over the Counter' reviews for minor projects, such as kitchen remodels, bathroom remodels, ICC Patio Covers and pools in non restricted zones. *see list of qualified projects for counter plan review.
Projects that require plan review are commensurate with the complexity of the plans and the proposed construction.
- How long is a permit good for?
Per the 2010 California Building Code, Appendix Chapter 1, Section 105.5 Expiration: Every permit issued shall become invalid unless the work on the site authorized by such permit is commenced within 180 days after its issuance, or if the work authorized on the site by such permit is suspended or abandoned for a period of 180 days after the time the work is commenced. The Building Official is authorized to grant, in writing, one or more extensions of time, for periods not more than 180 days each. The extension shall be requested in writing and justifiable cause demonstrated.
NEW CODE ADOPTIONS - Glendora has adopted the 2010 California Building Code (based on the 2009 International Building Code), the 2010 California Green Building Standards Code and the 2010 California Residential Code.
