Request for Documents
The California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250 et seq.) provides citizens with important rights to obtain access to records held by public agencies in the State.  In order to respond to an increasing demand for documents, the City Clerk’s Office has prepared a policy to clarify the process by which the City will respond to requests for records under the Public Records Act. All requests for public records must be submitted to the City Clerk on the City’s Public Records Request form. Request forms will be accepted by fax (818) 225-7324, by email to or in person. To download a public records request form to view or obtain copies of public records, please click here.

Written approval must be obtained from both the property owner and the licensed professional architect before copies of building plans can be made. This form must be completed/submitted to the City Clerk’s Division.

Those wishing to pay for copies of records with a credit card, can do so by completing a credit card authorization form.
