Our Location

Effective August 17, 2020, San Francisco Planning will be joining our sister agencies at the new Permit Center, where the Planning counter and 15 City agencies will co-locate to make construction, small business permits, and events in San Francisco easier for our customers.

Due to COVID-19, the Planning Department is not offering any in-person services, but we are operating remotely. Our staff are available by email, the Planning and Historic Preservation Commissions are convening remotely, and the public is encouraged to participate. Please visit our COVID-19 service information page here.
