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.

Butte County Climate Action Plan (CAP) - What Can I Do?
Learn more about how the CAP can improve your community, and help identify the best ideas for Butte County. All are welcome to participate in the County’s open house events or stakeholder focus groups. Please let us know if you would like to participate in one of these activities. More information about CAP events can be found on the Meetings and Events page of this website. 

In the meantime, learn about other Californians that have taken action to reduce energy use, cut costs, improve their homes, and live healthier lifestyles. The Cool California website provides profiles of what individuals around the state are doing: 

Please think big and share your ideas as the County embarks on this important planning process.
