Welcome to the City of Alameda's Citizen Portal
We are pleased to offer online permit research to citizens, businesses and visitors. Licensed contractors can also apply for simple permits.
Citizens may research Building, Planning, Fire and Public Works permits and inspection results 24 hours a day. You do not need to register in order to view this information.
Reports are now available from the report dropdown at the top of the page for permit receipts and permit history.
