Welcome to the Town of San Anselmo Web Portal

Attention! Under the Shelter in Place order and to limit potential exposure and spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Building Planning and Public Works counter will be closed to the public until May 3, 2020.

The Town is still accepting permit application submittals or revisions via eTrakit. Permit and plan reviews will continue, however no new permits will be issued until the Shelter in Place order has been lifted. 

During normal counter hours (M-Th, 8:30 am - 3 pm), we will be accessible by email, and checking and responding to voicemails

We will only be performing essential (as required for health and safety: e.g. landslides, heating, electricity, fire damage, etc.) construction inspections as needed.

All construction work must cease unless authorized by the Town.


Only Essential Construction Projects are allowed to continue. Only essential construction projects are allowed to continue, under the new order dated 3/31/2020. Essential construction is defined as:

1. Projects immediately necessary to the maintenance, operation or repair of Essential Infrastructure;

2. Projects associated with Healthcare Operations, including creating or expanding Healthcare Operations, provided that such construction is directly related to the COVID-19 response;

3. Affordable housing that is or will be income-restricted, including multi-unit or mixed-use developments containing at least 10% income-restricted units;

4. Public works projects if specifically designated as an Essential Governmental Function by the lead governmental agency;

5. Shelters and temporary housing, but not including hotels or motels;

6. Projects immediately necessary to provide critical non- commercial services to individuals experiencing homelessness, elderly persons, persons who are economically disadvantaged, and persons with special needs;

7. Construction necessary to ensure that existing construction sites that must be shut down under this Order are left in a safe and secure manner, but only to the extent necessary to do so; and

8. Construction or repair necessary to ensure that residences and buildings containing Essential Businesses are safe, sanitary, or habitable to the extent such construction or repair cannot reasonably be delayed;

 

The County advises that residents must defer their remodel or renovation projects unless they are necessary to restore your home to a safe, sanitary, and habitable space.
