The City of Seaside Building Department is located within City Hall at the Resource Management Services counter. 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.
The Building Department also enforces the City's Municipal Code and Vehicle Abatement program. Two full time Code Enforcement Officers are available to assist the public, enforce the Municipal Code, and issue citations to abandoned and illegally parked vehicles throughout the city. To report a Municipal Code violation or an abandoned/illegally parked vehicle, you may call the Code Enforcement officers listed below.
