In an effort to make more services available online, Planning is now taking applications online!

Please view the video below or read the instructional document to help understand the current process.

Once the information is received, Staff will review the documents submitted and contact you to go over the project and the documents submitted and then create the required planning application types in our on line permit tracking software.

Step 3:

The last step to the application process is to submit any other required documents that you may have missed and pay the project fees. Staff will send you an invoice, written instructions and the link to get started paying online.

Please Note: an application is not "submitted" or assigned to a planner until after the fees are paid and all documents required at intake are submitted. Please contact us at planning@cityofsanrafael.org  if you have any questions.
