Procedures for Requesting Permit Records and/or Plan Retrievals
Submit a Public Records Request Form to the City Clerk's office in-person, by mail, fax to (510) 620-6542 or via email to CityClerkDept@ci.richmond.ca.us. Requests for documents will be accommodated with consideration to workload priorities and available staff. Pursuant to the Public Records Act, within 10 days after you have requested public records, the City must respond to your request by stating whether the records you have requested are public records subject to disclosure and, if so, when the records will be made available for examination and copying. The City may charge a fee for photo copying of documents. [Online Fillable Public Records Request Form]
