Online Permit Center: Getting Started 

Review of Plans

Napa County has a number of services and permit applications available through it's Online Permit Center

We recommend reviewing the information available on the County website pages for the following County Departments and Divisions to determine which applications are currently available through the Online Permit Center:

  • Planning, Building and Environmental Services
  • County Fire
  • Public Works

We currently offer a limited number of permit applications and services through the Online Permit Center ("OPC"), and we are working to launch additional permit types in the coming months. At this time, you can now submit online through the OPC for the following residential building permit types: residential express, re-roofs, water heater replacement, furnace change-out, and electrical service upgrades, and agricultural electrical service. 

For the Planning & Conservation Division, we only offer the scheduling of Office Only preapplication meeting requests. At this time, we are not accepting Site Visit preapplication meeting requests or submittal of Planning Applications packets. Please contact Planning (Insert a link here or phone number) for initialization of such applications for processing.

Customers can also register for an OPC user account to check the status of their permit application, pay fees, and schedule inspections. Register for your OPC user account at: Online Permit Center. Detailed instructions are available for How To Register for an Online Permit Center User Account. (Note: for Building Applications not submitted directly through the OPC, our staff may need to "associate" your OPC User ID to the record for you to use these OPC features. If so, please email your OPC User ID and your Building Record number to [email protected]
