NOTICE: 

Starting January 25, 2021, Building and Planning Counter services will be available by appointment only. Same day appointments may be available for your convenience. Appointments may be made by going to www.cityoforange.org/cddappointments and filling out the appropriate form.  Our public counters are open with the goal to keep your projects moving forward and to answer your planning, building, and code enforcement inquiries while mitigating the number of people waiting to be seen at once.  We request visitors help us stem the spread of Coronavirus by abiding by the following:  

  • Please do not enter our facility if you are sick.
  • Please keep at least 6’ from others.
  • All patrons are required to have a face covering to enter our facility. 

*Please note that for all Building and Planning inspections, all persons on a job site MUST be wearing a face covering while inspector is on site or the inspection will not be conducted

Call (714) 744-7200, or email CDInfo@cityoforange.org, to connect with a member of the Planning, Building, or Code Enforcement staff.  Payment of fees may be handled over the phone. We look forward to serving you.
