Ventura OPS (Online Permit Services)

The City of Ventura has created a virtual one-stop-shop for permit services called Ventura OPS. The new digital public counter allows a customer to create an account and submit a permit application without coming to City Hall. This online solution streamlines the permitting process and makes it easier to submit permit applications, upload plan sets, schedule inspections, and easily check project status online.

Public Records Access Portal

All recorded permit history for an address can be found on our online Public Records Access Portal, under 'Search Type' and 'Public - Building & Safety Records (Keywords)' . Once selected, fill in the forms with the appropriate address information (street number, street name, etc.) and all recorded permit history will display.


As of December 2, 2021, the prior online portal process has been discontinued.

ALL PERMIT APPLICATIONS and RESUBMITTALS must be submitted online using Ventura OPS.

To continue to submit Private Sewer Lateral (PSL) Reports: PSL Report.

Please note: this is a working map so projects are being updated or added regularly and as staffing time permits. Minor applications such as single family residences, Alcohol Use Permits, and Minor Variances will be removed from the development map once the appeal period has passed (10 days after the final action).
