City's Online Permit Center Makes Permit Process Easier for Residents
The City of Santa Clarita wants to remind residents that they can receive permit assistance from the comfort of their home or office by using the Online Permit Center available at santa-clarita.com/PermitCenter.
The user-friendly website simplifies the permit process with a step-by-step Permit Guide, offering guidance throughout the approval and permit process. Over 1,000 permit guides have already been created using the Permit Guide software. Other features on the website include access to an eService where residents can apply for a new permit or view the status of a current one, and a schedule that outlines different times to visit the Permit Center at City Hall, depending on what service is needed.
The Online Permit Center is currently only available for residential construction projects, and the City is working toward offering an option for commercial projects in the future.
In 2018, the Building and Safety division issued 5,364 permits and performed 29,288 building inspections for more than 293 million dollars of new construction within City limits. The Online Permit Center will aid the City with its goal of allowing residents to have the most efficient service possible, while also remaining committed to the integrity of new buildings.For more information about the Permit Center, please contact Building and Safety at (661) 255-4935.

The City of Santa Clarita takes pride in utilizing exhibition spaces to share the talented work of local art organizations, independent artists, and nationally recognized artists. Art galleries enrich our community by bringing new visitors to local exhibit spaces to experience art.
The City of Santa Clarita City Council and Arts Commission is proud to present the New Heights: Artist Development Workshops, which is designed to assist artists, performers, and arts organization representatives to expand their knowledge and to learn valuable tools to increase their ability to be successful. The series comprises workshops, panel discussions, and art trips that are designed to engage creative individuals, no matter what level of experience.
Public Art is a tool to add to the personality of a community, while also encouraging creative expression and discussion. Many of the Public Art projects are an opportunity for the community to be a part of the construction of the pieces, thus creating truly "public" art.
The City of Santa Clarita is committed to increase opportunities for students in the Santa Clarita Valley to participate in and be exposed to high quality arts experiences, while also increasing the awareness of the value the arts add to the community.
