Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.

- Framing plan indicating all framing details, dimensions, insulation, wall coverings, roofing, etc.
- Elevations showing how the proposed construction will look from the outside.
- Show compliance with minimum energy efficiency standards.
- Basic electrical, heating and air and plumbing layouts.
- If your neighborhood has a Homeowner’s Association (HOA), then you’ll need to get their approval stamp on plans before submittal to City. Check your deed restrictions (CC&Rs) and HOA requirements before submitting for plan check.
