Whether a business is applying for a building improvement permit, requesting a fire flow test or inquiring about a Request for Proposal, we want to provide information quickly and efficiently.

The most frequently requested forms and documents are available on-line. If you don’t see the form you need or would like to talk with a representative from the District, please call 949-459-6420.
