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.

Notable Projects

This page provides links to major advance and current planning projects being undertaken by the Department of Development Services:

Active Projects

 

Creekside Estates Tentative Subdivision Map - An application for a Tentative Subdivision Map to divide a 49.4 acre parcel into 47 residential lots was submitted to the Department of Development Services on February 7, 2018.  The subject property is located on the south side of Durham-Dayton Highway across the street from Van Ness Way (2243 Durham Dayton Highway).  If you have any questions, please contact Senior Planner Mark Michelena via email or by phone at 530.552.3683.

Community Choice Aggregation – Butte County is currently researching whether Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) could be an option for customers within the city and unincorporated areas of the County. CCA is a program that allows cities, counties and other qualifying governmental entities to purchase and/or generate electricity for their residents and businesses.  If a local CCA is formed, it would purchase and/or generate electricity for customers and PG&E would continue to deliver the electricity through its transmission and distribution system and provide meter reading, billing, and maintenance services for CCA customers. Learn more about a CCA in Butte County at www.buttecounty.net/administration/Community-Choice-Aggregation.   

Completed Projects


PowerButte Utility-Scale Solar Guide (September 26, 2017) - The Butte County  Board of Supervisors approved the Butte Utility-Scale Solar Guide on September 26, 2017 on a 5-0 vote.  The Butte Utility-Scale Solar Guide is a component of the PowerButte initiative and is a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about utility-scale solar facilities within unincorporated Butte County, including landowners, developers, community members, and decision-makers. If you have any questions, please contact Principal Planner Dan Breedon via email or by phone at (530) 553-3682.
