Development Services

If you are looking to create jobs, talk with us. We process Building Permits including Plan Review, Inspections and coordination with other agencies to issue Permits. We process Development Applications including environmental review, provide zoning information and support long-range planning through the County’s General Plan. Code Enforcement responds to Building, Land Use, Abandoned Vehicles, Noise, Nuisance Abatement and the County’s Restrictions on Cultivation of Medical Marijuana Ordinance complaints.


County Documents


The links to the two Plumas NF maps below are from Subpart A of the Motorized Travel Management Plan for PNF. The roads with red lines have been determined as not being needed and are proposed to be closed at some point. The local counties (including Butte) requested that this process go through a NEPA process but the Forest has said it is not a decision document. When finalized, the Subpart A roads determined to be "not needed" will be reviewed in future SOPA’s such as a vegetation management project. The NEPA document for that specific project will be used to review and consider closing the roads in or near the project.
