A permit is required to be issued by the Building and Safety Department, whenever a building is being demolished. This is to assure that construction debris has been removed, sewer or septic lines have been properly capped, and the site is restored to a safe condition to ensure that all health and safety hazards have been removed. In addition, you may also be required to participate in the Construction and Demolition Diversion Program
Demolition permits for buildings or structures that appear on a Federal, State, or local historical register as well as those that are determined to be historically significant, may require additional review prior to issuance.
California State Law also requires that all contaminants, such as asbestos, be properly disposed of. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that all demolition permit applicants first obtain clearance from the South Coast Air Quality Management District, prior to applying for a demolition permit from the City of Rancho Cucamonga.
South Coast Air Quality Management District is located at 21865 Copley Dr., Diamond Bar, CA 91765. They may be reached via telephone at (909) 396-2000 or by visiting the District's website: http://www.aqmd.gov.
For further information, please contact the Building and Safety Department at (909) 477-2710 for additional information regarding demolition permits or stop by our Counter at City Hall.
