Building Official – Mark Sutton, B.S.C.E, M.B.A, C.B.O
The Building and Safety Division is responsible for the building and safety standards for the design, construction, use, and occupancy, of all buildings and structures within the City of Dana Point. We provide plan checking, permitting, and inspection services for new construction, additions, renovations, alterations, and remodels to assure all structures meet the minimum life safety standards of State and local building codes adopted by the City of Dana Point.
Your development experience starts at our Development Services Counter (DSC) located on the second floor of City Hall in suite 209. At the DSC, staff will assist you with the processing of your development project and guide you through this somewhat complex process. After all of the reviews and approvals are complete, you will be ready to obtain your building permits. If you are going to do the improvements to your home yourself, you can obtain an “Owner Builder” permit after completing the owner builder verification form or if you are not going to do the work yourself, you can have your California Licensed Contractor obtain the permits and begin your development project.
Our goal in the City of Dana Point is to provide an effective and efficient service to our citizens, developers, contractors, architects and engineers and provided answers to frequently asked questions and general information about the development process. Information presented is intended to assist you in obtaining information about development standards and requirements for the City of Dana Point. However if you do not find the information you need or have further questions please feel free to contact us at (949) 248-3547 or you can send an E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
