Public Works

The Public Works Department is organized into three divisions; Public Works Administration, Operations, and Engineering. However, our area of service goes far beyond these three simple descriptors. Our Mission Statement, "To enhance the quality of life and preserve the City's heritage and charm through timely response, effective design, environmental sensitivity, and infrastructure maintenance" truly captures the essence of the Department. We pride ourselves in providing quality service to the citizens of San Juan Capistrano and other interested parties.

Public Works Counter Service Hours Monday –Thursday 7:30 am – 5:30 pm, Friday 7:30 am – 4:30 pm
