    Construction Management Plans  

    Many construction projects will require a Construction Management Plan (CMP) that takes into account all relevant construction or demolition work, including parking, truck routes, schedules, road closures, material storage and more. The CMP must be approved by the Building Official prior to the issuance of a building permit.

    Please download the City of Mill Valley Construction Management Plan Guidelines for more information.
