Pre-Application Meetings

Pre-application meetings are an opportunity to meet with staff from all Divisions and receive valuable feedback on your project. In particular, staff can identify the type of application and related permits that may be necessary, permit processing steps and timelines, and pertinent information and technical studies that will be required to submit a complete application. 

To schedule a pre-application meeting, please complete the pre-application meeting form and send via email to our Administrative staff at pbes@countyofnapa.org.
