Filming Permits


Applicants are required to notify the City ten (10) working days prior to the expected filming and prep date(s).  This will allow sufficient time for staff to process and coordinate with the various departments involved. This amount of time is necessary to effectively accomplish all requirements including notifications procedures prior to the filming start date.

In order for the permit to be approved and issued, all required documentation must be completed and submitted in advance of filming. 

New filming fees will go into effect on July 1, 2023. 

Please call the Community Development Department at (626) 308-2806 and dial extension 4621 with any questions.
