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.

The Building Stakeholder Meetings meet every other month on either a Wednesday or Thursday typically from 3:00- 5:00pm, to discuss issues related to the activities associated to the Building Division: Permits (Permit Center), Plan Review, Inspections, and Code Enforcement as well as any new codes, forms, and /or processes(policies) being developed.
