The Building and Safety Division is comprised of the Chief Building Official and our staff of plan check engineers, inspectors, administrative personnel, and code enforcement officers. The Building and Safety Division's responsibility is the health and safety of the citizens of Redondo Beach and the general public who visit our city. We apply building code standards for many reasons, including public safety, the economic well being of the community, conservation and environmental concerns. At the same time, we endeavor to achieve an excellent level of public service in timeliness, courtesy, and quality. At our public counter you can find detailed and updated information for individual subjects, in the form of brochures and memorandums. Assistance is available to persons with physical disabilities.

Draft Artesia Aviation Corridors Area Plan (AACAP)

Artesia Boulevard

The most recent effort to move forward with improvements to the Aviation and Artesia Corridors was initiated in 2018 when the City Council authorized the preparation of the Artesia and Aviation Corridors Area Plan (AACAP) to provide more focused policy and placemaking guidance to one of the city’s most prominent and travelled east-west Corridors. The AACAP effort was rolled into the General Plan Advisory Committee’s (GPAC’s) ongoing efforts. The Draft AACAP is now available for review. GPAC will consider the Draft AACAP at its meeting on Thursday September 26th. Click on the link to review the Draft AACAP and for more information on how to comment.

Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

In early 2018 the City of Redondo Beach began the process of updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan, or LHMP. This plan will help create a safer community for residents, businesses, and visitors. The LHMP allows public safety officials and city staff, elected officials, and members of the public understand the threats from natural and human-caused hazards in our community. The plan will also recommend specific actions to proactively decrease these threats before disasters occur. The Draft LHMP is available for public review and comment through October 31, 2019.
