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 March 8, 2021. All electronic application processing will pause after March 8th at 5:00 PM, until we open our new electronic submittal site (Accela’s HB ACA) on March 15, 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 March 9, 2021. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition.
