Building & Safety

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.

A building permit is required for any construction improvement, repair, alteration, construction, or demolition project, including pool or spa installations, sandblasting, most excavation and the erection of temporary structures such as temporary power poles. The applicant must provide the Building and Safety Department with who will do the work, project location and the scope of work. Most permits are processed quickly if the project is in compliance with the required construction codes and ordinance. The Plan checker will approve the plans or compile a list of corrections. The Building Department will call the applicant with results. Once permit fees are paid and the permit is issued the owner or licensed contractor is responsible for scheduling inspections. Once all inspections are signed off on permit the project is finialed and or will be ready for a Certificate of Occupancy. The Building and Safety Division enforces building codes and standards adopted by the State of California and the City of Adelanto for residential and commercial structures. Building and Safety Counter hours are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
