Review of Plansets  

Welcome To The Consolidated Permit Counter!

 

Same Day Permit hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. 

As of June 10, 2013:

In an effort to improve customer service and reduce costs for building permit applicants, our building division will require only three copies of plans for new applications.  Plan sets should be no larger than 24”X 36” and submitted with your new permit application.  Questions?  Please contact the Building Division at (707) 253-4417.  

 

As a Result of the Reorganization and New Consolidated Permit Counter You Will Notice the Following:

A reduced number of plan sets are required for building permits submittal. Applicants will receive a consolidated comment letter related to the building application.

Customers can receive information and assistance from each division every day, all day long.   

While many services have been combined, due to specific requirements within specialized programs, the following projects still require separate plan submittal:  

 

  • COMMERCIAL FOOD FACILITIES   
  • COMMERCIAL SWIMMING POOL
  • ENGINEERED SEPTIC SYSTEMS
  • GRADING PERMITS
  • PUBLIC WATER SYSTEMS
  • PLANNING USE PERMITS AND MODIFICATIONS

 

For the best service, contact our program specialist directly for specific requirements.
