You can start by using our Building Permit resource page to better learn what you steps you will need to take. If you need more guidance and assistance with the online process or have any questions, feel free to call us @ (415)388-4033 or email us @ email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also currently offer limited counter hours at the Planning and Building Department at Mill Valley City Hall, 26 Corte Madera Avenue (next to Mill Valley Market), between the hours of 8AM and 12PM, every Tuesday and Thursday. Our lobby is open Mon-Thurs from 8AM to 5PM with a break for lunch between Noon and 1PM, for simple inquiries and appointments. We are closed every Friday.
Oftentimes, a quick conversation with a planner may validate whether or not a project is viable, and an inspector can provide information on the permitting process, code requirements, and other building-related subjects. They may also be able to determine if consultation with other departments and/or agencies prior to the design process is appropriate, depending on the scope of your project.
