Is it possible to order copies of commercial or residential plans from your office? What procedure is required? Is a fee involved?

Yes, it is possible to order copies of commercial and residential plans through the Development Services Center (DSC). However, if the plans are designed by a professional, a letter of release from each professional must be obtained through DSC staff before copies can be ordered. This process can take up to 30 days and costs $82.50 per release letter. Plans without licensed professional stamps and/or signatures can be readily ordered. Contact the Development Services Center for cost related to copies at (510) 494-4443. For additional information review the Records Request web page: https://fremont.gov/395/Records-Request
