The City of Seaside Building & Code enforcement department is responsible for the safety of buildings and public infrastructure in the City of Seaside. This is accomplished through the issuance and inspections of buildings & structures as well as through the enforcement of our City's Municipal Code. 

The Building & Code Enforcement Department is located within City Hall at the Permits & Inspections counter.

Building Safety through Permits & Inspections



Before starting any type of building project or major repairs, it is recommended that the owner contacts the Building Department to verify whether or not a permit is required for the scope of work that is being proposed. The mission of the Building Department is to enforce and maintain public safety, health, and welfare. Through the use of building permits, the Building Department can ensure that structures are built to safe building code standards.

To prepare your project for review, please check out the following resources prior to contacting the Building Department:
