Building Permit Data, 2000-2018

Anthony Miller filed this request with the Cupertino City Clerk of Cupertino, CA.
Est. Completion None
Fix Required


From: Anthony Miller

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act (California Government Code ยงยง 6250), I hereby request the following records:

The city of Cupertino receives requests for building permits. The city provides online templates which allow for search of these records, however, not the data itself. I would like the data, likely in a spreadsheet form, that powers this database: - records of building permit applications for the years 2000-2018.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.


Anthony Miller

From: Cupertino City Clerk

Good morning Mr. Miller,

Building permits can be found online here<>. It seems like you weren't going far enough into the document folder structure to the actual document.

Per the Public Records Act, a local agency has no duty to create a record that does not exist at the time of the request.

Please contact the Building Department directly at 408-777-3228 if you need additional assistance in finding a particular building permit.

Kind Regards,

Grace Schmidt, MMC
Cupertino City Clerk
