Please note that the City of Huntington Beach will be transitioning to a new permitting and application system for development services. The current eProcess Portal will close for new applications, resubmittals, and revisions on February 9, 2021. All electronic application processing will pause after February 9th at 5:00 PM, until we open our new electronic submittal site (Accela’s HB ACA) on February 16, 2021. Please plan your submittals in advance to avoid project delays. Instructions for setting up an account and submitting projects online through HB ACA will be posted to our website by February 10, 2021. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition.
