Records and Document Search

The City's Records and Document Search program allows you to search, browse, and read important documents - without having to come to City Hall!

We continue to add more records as time allows. Currently, the following are available:

  • City Council Ordinances: 1955 - Present
  • City Council Resolutions: 1961-63, 1966, 1972 - Present
  • City Council Minutes: 1911 - Present
  • Petaluma Community Development Commission (PCDC - the former redevelopment commission) Resolutions: 1975 - 2012
  • PCDC Minutes: 1975 - 2012
  • Petaluma Community Development Successor Agency (PCDSA) Resolutions: 2012 - Present
  • Historic and Cultural Preservation Committee Resolutions: 2010 - Present
  • Planning Commission Resolutions: 2005 - Present

Please be patient. Due to budget constraints, our license is limited and does not allow multiple users to access the system simultanously. If the system is busy, please try again later.

You should know that we can only provide limited assistance. For further information, contact the City Clerk's office

Permits are an important part of how the City keeps buildings and spaces safe.  Permits allow us to make sure construction meets codes, and are made to protect human life during a fire or earthquake.
