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.

Permitted Special Event Facilities

Butte County maintains a list of permitted special events facilities in the unincorporated portions of Butte County.  These facilities have been reviewed for compliance with the requirements of the Butte County Zoning Ordinance and found to meet the County's standards.  By using a permitted facility, you can be assured your event will be held in a location approved by Butte County and conducted consistent with County requirements.  We want your event to be memorable for all the right reasons!
