Inspections

The Public Works and Building Department will only perform essential construction inspections (as required for health and safety: e.g. landslides, heating, electricity, fire damage, etc.). 

Construction

What is the impact on construction projects in San Anselmo?


So long as social distancing practices are used during construction, a variety of projects are allowed. The Town recommends only one contractor onsite at a time to minimize potential exposure to the virus.  All residential construction projects that are partly completed can continue to completion in order to ensure health and safety. The Order prohibits new construction projects unless they are adding to the supply of our county’s housing stock (i.e. building a second unit, building a new home, etc.) or maintaining the habitability of homes in order to avoid displacement of residents. Business construction projects related to maintaining or upgrading essential business, government or health care infrastructure are also allowed to go forward.


The County advises that residents must defer their remodel or renovation projects unless they are necessary to restore your home to a safe, sanitary, and habitable space.
