We process Development Applications including environmental review, provide zoning information and support long-range planning through the County’s General Plan.

Planning Awards

Innovation in Green Planning Award

2015-01-21 - Butte County staff received a Merit Award at the Sacramento Valley Chapter of the American Planning Association

The award was given to Butte County for work writing, working with the community and having the Board of Supervisors adopt an innovative Climate Action Plan (CAP). It is rare in northern California, in a somewhat rural county, to have a CAP. Butte's CAP implements a Mitigation Measure of the 2010 Butte County General Plan 2030 to address the requirements of AB 32 and address the CEQA impacts of Greenhouse gases.

We had excellent teamwork on this project with our Consultants PMC and Ascent.
