Fremont Closes Offices
Fremont's Development Services Center will be closed as of Dec. 14, 2020, until further notice in order to limit the spread of COVID-19. The majority of city staff will be working remotely. Protecting the health of employees and the community remains the top priority for the city. The Development Services Center will remain closed until further notice. Updates on reopening will be made available on the Center’s webpage.
The Center, located at 39550 Liberty Street, is the city’s one-stop shop for accepting, reviewing and approving permit applications and construction documents for all types of projects.
