Public Record Requests


The Community Development Agency receives and processes thousands of Public Record requests on an annual basis. We receive a wide variety of requests ranging from copies of well permits to parcel maps to site plans. 

Public Records Act

In accordance with the California Public Records Act (PDF), the agency will respond to your request within 10 days. The Community Development Agency (CDA) works hard to fulfill requests for records within the initial 10-day period, but the actual determination may be extended up to 14 days and the actual provision of records is allowed a reasonable time period with an estimated date given. Please contact the agency if you have questions or concerns.
