The Building Division of the City of Shasta Lake has amended the residential building permit submittal process for new construction. Our goal is to increase efficiency for the benefit of applicants and City staff and to expedite the review process. All sets of building plans can now be submitted directly to the Building Division.

The department will distribute required documents to reviewing agencies and review by these agencies will take place simultaneously. After all comments have been received by those reviewing agencies, the Building Division may issue a permit if all reviews are in favor of the submitted plans.

Each submittal requires three full sets of construction plans and an electronic version. Please see the information below for a complete list of documents required for submittal to the City of Shasta Lake Building Division.
