In light of recent events related to coronavirus (COVID-19) and the Shelter In Place ordered by the Alameda County Health Official, effective March 17, 2020, City Hall (including the Community Development Department and Permit Center) is closed. Non-essential services have been suspended through May 3, 2020, unless otherwise extended.
