Latest News in the Building Division
Pursuant to Brisbane Municipal Code §8.41.010, the City’s Director of Public Works determined on Sept. 2, 2014 that Stage 1 Drought Response Measures should be implemented to reduce water consumption by 10%.  Effective 10/7/2014, water consumption reduction measures are required of all city water customers, including contractors. Failure to comply subjects violators to penalties up to $500. 

The City of Brisbane now accepts building permits to be submitted electronically through its Building Permits web-based system.  The system allows the public to initiate and manage a variety of building permit requests and activities through a centralized web portal, such as submitting plans and documents online and tracking the progess of their building permit applications.  It is the goal of the City to reduce the amount of paper generated during the permitting and plan review process.  By using our new electronic review system, citizens can help us reach these sustainability goals while leveraging the added convenience of an online system.

The City's new system is powered by GreenVue Fusion software.  GreenVue Fusion provides innovative and affordable permitting and electronic plan review solutions for jurisdictions of all sizes.  To learn more about GreenVue Fusion, please visit www.gvfusion.com.

Building Code Enforcement

Building code enforcement is to help ensure a safe and attractive environment, where built structures are permitted, as appropriate, and built to current applicable codes.  We strive to gain voluntary cooperation to correct code violations.  For questions about building codes or code enforcement, please contact the Community Development Department at (415) 508-2120, or use this weblink to to file a confidential code enforcement complaint.  If you have received an administrative citation, please go to the FAQ page for more information.
