Request a code assistance meeting for a new project

Code Assistance Meetings provide an opportunity for the public to introduce proposed projects to knowledgeable representatives of the Fire Department, Building Division, Planning Division, Water Pollution, and other concerned City staff. Meetings are appropriate when proposals are at a stage when specific information can be submitted. Our intent is to provide reliable responses to your questions and give your ideas on what codes will need to be met, what information will need to be submitted, and how to go about submitting for permits. It must be understood that these meetings are purely advisory at this stage and that submittal of more complete information during the permit application phase may result in new issues being raised.

A Code Assistance Meeting provides reliable responses to questions from facilities with:

  • hazardous materials
  • high-piled storage
  • hazardous processes
  • changes in building use
  • multiple Fire Code and Building Code requirements

Code Assistance Meetings are held in:
Permit Center - Conference Room 1C
Hayward City Hall - 1st floor
777 B Street - entrance on Watkins Street.

Two 1 hour meetings are scheduled every Wednesday: 11:00 a.m. and at 1:30 p.m.

The Fire Department invites staff from Fire, Building Inspection, Planning, Public Works, and representatives from other City regulatory agencies to discuss their respective requirements for the project.
