Building Plans

The following applies to new construction (commercial and residential), residential additions and remodels, and commercial tenant improvement(s).


Where do I go?

2850 Via Orange Way
Spring Valley, CA 91978
Please ring upstairs using the button to the left of the double doors marked "San Miguel Administration" and proceed to the second floor. We are open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm. Please note we close from 12 to 1 pm for lunch, and are closed weekends and major holidays.

What do I need to bring?

3 sets of plans
1 set for retention by San Miguel, and 2 sets to be stamped by us (for residential and commercial building or tenant improvement plans, these should already be reviewed and stamped by the County before submitting to Fire.)

Mitigation form
(any project creating new square footage will be charged mitigation fees. Please bring the "San Diego County Fire Mitigation Fees" form with your plan check. This form is not necessary for commercial tenant improvements or residential remodels where no square footage is being added.)

For stamp transfers and resubmittals, please bring one old (stamped) set of plans along with two new sets,

How long will it take?

All plans will need to be left for review and we ask that you allow 7 business days for your plan check to be completed. "Over the counter" plan checks are not available.

How much will it cost?

Click on Plan Check Fees below and locate your project type. Note that new construction projects will also be charged a mapping fee to cover the cost of updating our mapping system to reflect your project.
