Temporary Use Permits (TUP)
Temporary Use Permits are issued through the Planning Department and allow special uses for a determined amount of time. Some uses are subject to Sacramento Metro Fire and/or Building & Safety Department approval. Be aware of any other department approvals that may apply to your permit. The TUP will not be issued if there are outstanding requirements from other departments.
