A landscape and irrigation permit is required for new building projects that contain an aggregate landscape area of 500 square feet or more and for rehabilitation building projects that contain an aggregate landscape area over 2,500 square feet.

Landscape and irrigation plans are a required element of the building plan set and are subject to review and approval by the Community Development Department. The links below include checklists for landscape plans as well as information on the State’s Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (MWELO).  Submit an online application using eTRAKiT or visit the ePermit Center for more information.

You can email or call City Arborist Aimee Nunez at 916-461-6213 with any questions about landscape requirements.
