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.

Users' Group

The Development Services Users’ Group is a monthly meeting to discuss issues related to development and permitting processes in the County. This is an open meeting for interested contractors, builders, engineers, surveyors and residents. The agenda is circulated one week before the meeting. These meetings are held the last Wednesday of the month. Check the website for place and time of the Users’ Group meeting. The Users’ Group is not a decision making body. It does, however, provide a forum for staff to brief those interested in current and upcoming issues related to the development and permit processes in the County. Issues from Development Services (Planning and Building), Public Works and Environmental Health are regularly discussed at the Users’ Group.
