Building Permit Requirements Under Assembly Bill (AB) 2234

Assembly Bill (AB) 2234 requires local jurisdictions to make available on their websites the requirements for any post-entitlement phase permit (including building permits or demolition permits) for projects that are majority or entirely residential. Information required to be posted includes required submission materials and examples of complete plan sets for at least five types of housing projects. AB 2234 also requires jurisdictions to determine whether a post-entitlement phase permit application is completed within 15 days of receiving the application, requires project review to be complete within 30 days for projects 25 units or fewer, and 60 days for projects 26 units or more. Finally, the law requires that jurisdictions have an online permit system where applicants can apply for such permits.
