Accessory Dwelling Unit Permit & Requirements

Solar with New Accessory Dwelling Unit

When submitting an application for a new ADU, solar is to be deferred.  Please visit the solar permit tab for submittal requirements.

Submittal Requirements

Located below are informative documents and forms required with the building permit application.  Additional documents not found on the Town of Loomis website may be requested of the applicant after submittal.

How to Submit a Building Permit Application

The building permit application, along with all project documents, can be submitted digitally via email or in-person.  Digital is the Town's preferred method of project submittal.  Incomplete applications will not be accepted, and corrections will be asked of the applicant before intake of any documents or the start of review.

Digital Submittal (Preferred Method)

Digital submittals are the preferred method of submitting a project, and often times result in a quicker review process.  Digital submittals are accepted via email to Michael Pinola at building@loomis.ca.gov and Jordan Tibbits at jtibbits@loomis.ca.gov.  Include both email addresses when submitting and place the project site address in the subject line.  All digital submittals and supporting documents must have clear and crisp print, be free from stains and smudges, and be legible.  Images and photo attachments will not be accepted.  It is the applicant's responsibility to have all items required.

In-Person Submittal

In-person submittals are accepted at Town Hall.  To submit in-person, the Town requires three (3)- 24"x36" plan sets, a completed building permit application, and two (2) sets of all other supporting documents on standard 8.5"x11" size printer paper.  All documents, including the building permit application, must have clear and crisp print, be free from stains and smudges, and be legible.  It is the applicant's responsibility to have all items required.

Resubmittals

If a project has correction comments after a review, a Plan Correction Letter will be sent via email to the applicant.  It is important to closely follow resubmittal instructions outlined in this email.  Any missing documents or unaddressed correction comments can delay the subsequent review, extending the timeline for the permit to be issued.  Do not resubmit until all documents have been prepared and are ready to submit all at once.  The Town will not accept partial or fragmentary resubmittals.

Notice to Contractors

All contractors performing work within the Town of Loomis must have a Town of Loomis business license.  Please visit the Planning Department's business license page to learn how to obtain a Loomis business license and submit applicable fees.  Building permits will not be able to be processed if a contractor does not have a Town of Loomis business license.

Authorization Letter

Please bring letter authorizing employee to sign on your behalf to obtain a building permit or business license.
