The City of San Ramon has implemented a new business and development processing and tracking system.
Submit your business license and/or permit application online.
Once you have registered you can “Apply” for a business license or permit.
Carefully choose the type of permit you are applying for by scrolling to the permit you want to apply for. Once you submit an application we cannot change the permit type so choose carefully.
Follow the submittal process and submit your project.
Thank you again for your submittal and using this system to process your application. We feel this will improve our processing times and get projects on track for completion sooner.
