Building & Safety Department

Our Mission Statement


The mission of the Adelanto Building and Safety Department is to protect the lives and safety of the residents and visitors of Adelanto, preserve the City's quality of life, and contribute to the City's economic development. This is accomplished through the implementation of the California Building, Plumbing, Mechanical and Electrical Codes as well as Disabled Access, Energy, Green Building and Zoning regulations for construction and maintenance of commercial, industrial, and residential development within the City.
 
A building permit grants legal permission to start construction of a building project. A building permit provides the means for Building Officials to reduce the potential hazards of unsafe construction and therefore ensuring the public health, safety and welfare.
 
Permit applications must be submitted before construction or remodeling. Only the property owner of the owner's licensed contractor or authorized agent can obtain a permit. The Building Official will inspect construction to ensure minimum standards are met and appropriate materials are used. Visit the Building and Safety for the permit process.
