Coronavirus COVID-19 UPDATE

The health and well-being of Chula Vista residents during the COVID-19 outbreak remains our top priority. Out of an abundance of caution, and in accordance with State Guidelines issued regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, the City of Chula Vista will modify operations. For detailed information please visit

Many City of Chula Vista operations continue despite City facility closures. Here is a list of City Services you can access online. The City Hall Complex (except for the Finance Counter), Public Works, City Recreation Centers, the Norman Park Senior Center and Chula Vista Public Libraries are closed until further notice. This closure includes library, cultural arts and recreation programming, as well as youth and adult sports held at local parks/fields. Critical Public Safety Operations continue. The CVPD lobby is open for limited services.

Development Services Support

Essential City services provided by the Development Services Department (DSD) will resume as soon as possible to minimize disruption to the development community.  As a result of this closure, inspections are being prioritized on a case by case basis, with an emphasis on public health and safety.  If you have a scheduled inspection, please be advised that your inspection may be rescheduled to a later date. 
We are developing an action plan to deliver safe and timely services to our customers, including permit applications, plan review, and inspections.  At this time, most interactions will occur by phone or email.  Our doors at DSD will remain locked.  There may be delays in returning calls/emails, but our goal is to respond within one business day.  A directory of DSD staff, including email addresses, can be accessed here.

New!  Our DSD COVID-19 Operational Plan details our permit submittal, resubmittal, and issuance processes.

Please monitor this website for additional operational updates.

We know these are challenging times and appreciate all your support and understanding. For more information regarding the Coronavirus, please visit:
