How do I get a copy of plans and or past permits?

State law requires that plans become copyrighted documents when an architect or engineer has placed their professional seal upon them. The plans may not be duplicated without the written authorization of the architect or engineer who prepared them. The law also requires the owner of the plans to authorize the duplication of the plans.

In order to receive copies of the City’s set of approved plans, an Affidavit for Duplication of plans must be completed and submitted to the Building Safety Department with a processing fee. Contact the Building Safety Department at 951-461-6062 for current processing fee and procedures.

To see what the City of Murrieta has on file you can request records through the City Clerks webpage.
