  • What We Do

    The Planning & Community Development Department's Building & Safety Division is committed to serving as partners for solutions in the development of safe, healthy and economically viable neighborhoods.  Its role is to ensure the long-term competitive position of the Pasadena's housing stock leveraging the partnerships with the public and private sectors.  The Building & Safety Division accomplishes this through the development of ordinances, enforcement of the city's zoning and housing and environmental codes.

    The Building & Safety Division manages the Building, Code Compliance, and the Permit Center sections. 

    The Building & Safety Division contains two inspection teams -  One for code compliance and one for building inspections.
