Housing Services


The health and safety of our community is our highest priority and we request your cooperation. Due to the updated Shelter in Place Health Order No. 20-10 issued by Alameda County on April 29 2020, the Permit Center remains closed until further notice. Housing will continue to provide services remotely until the Health Order is lifted. We recommend anyone seeking City services to review the current Health Order and FAQs  before contacting us.
