Permits are the way the City of Riverside regulates construction. This is designed to ensure that all construction in the city is safe. The safety of the occupants of buildings is the primary reason for having construction codes. The City of Riverside has adopted several codes, among them the Uniform Building, Mechanical and Plumbing, and National Electrical codes.
In addition, there are federal, state and local laws that govern construction, alteration, enlargement, conversion, reconstruction, remodeling, rehabilitation, erection, demolition, moving or repair of a building such as those covering energy conservation and disabled access. The City has handouts to help you through this process. Once plans are approved, you’re required to build the project to those plans. If any changes are made to the plans, they must be made with the City’s approval.
