Zoning Permits, Licenses, & Applications

It is recommended that you speak to a Planner prior to submitting any Planning applications. Please note that all Planning applications are now submitted electronically through our Permit Portal. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us. Our in-person public counter is open, and no appointments are needed to stop by!

If you would like to make an appointment with a Planner, click on the City of Alhambra Appointment Calendar. In-person meetings will take place at the Community Development Department counter at City Hall. Zoom meetings and phone calls are also available upon request. If you would prefer to meet via Zoom or to be called at your desired time, please specify in the "Additional Comments" section. If not otherwise specified, it is assumed the appointment will be in-person.
