Torrance has streamlined its permitting processes to provide improved customer service. New permit procedures and a computerized permit tracking system have been implemented to "fast-track" your building permit applications. In addition, the City has developed informational brochures that explain permits and procedures. A customized packet of these brochures can be assembled for your convenience. They include:

  • City Guide for New Businesses
  • Sign Permits
  • Business Licenses
  • Conditional Use Permits
  • Tenant Improvement Building Permits
  • Hazardous Materials Information
  • Others as needed for custom packages
