Building Services

DEPARTMENTAL MISSION

The Building Department supports the Vision and Mission of the City by providing leadership, commitment, and resources for excellent service in a friendly cost-effective manner necessary to ensure the safety of our built environment.

The Building Department is coordinated staffed from other departments in city hall. We use contractors for plan checking and inspection services. Inspections are scheduled by calling City Hall at 831-675-5000. Our courteous staff will take messages if our regular staff can't attend to your needs immediately. We are working to have our application and inspection services available from this website. Please be patient as we grow in capabilities.

Important Note for Builders and Contractors:
Gonzales City Code CHAPTER 11.48 addresses DECONSTRUCTION, DEMOLITION AND CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL RECOVERY AND DIVERSION FROM LANDFILLS.

This code is in the process of being aligned with CalGreen code requirements and standards. Until such time that Gonzales City Code is changed, all builders and contractors should be aware that CalGreen building standards supersede that of the City of Gonzales. Please visit the California Building Standards Commission website to ensure that your project's compliance on construction and demolition debris recovery, recycling, and diversion is in compliance with these standards.
