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.

Zoning Administrator (ZA)

The Zoning Administrator serves as the hearing authority for project applications such as Minor Use Permits, Minor Variances, Parcel Maps, and other activities and functions.  County Code provides that the Development Services Director, or designee, shall serve as the Zoning Administrator.  The Zoning Administrator may approve or deny projects.  Either decision is subject to an appeal to the Planning Commission.  The Zoning Administrator may also refer projects to the Planning Commission in advance of or at the public hearing. The concept is that the Zoning Administrator considers minor and non-controversial public hearing items.  Meetings are scheduled on an as-needed basis on Wednesdays at 10:00 am in the Development Services Conference room at 7 County Center Drive, Oroville, CA or as otherwise noted on the meeting agenda.   Any member of the public may attend.
