NEW as of June 10, 2013
Good News! In an effort to improve customer service and reduce costs for building permit applicants, starting June 17, 2013 the 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.
The Permit Services Center, with its reception area and consolidated permit counter, is designed to facilitate customer services and improve organizational efficiencies. Professional staff with expertise in planning, building, environmental health, engineering, conservation, and fire safety will be on hand to answer questions in person or by phone throughout the day, Monday through Friday. Administrative staff will help customers find the resources they need.
With the opening of the Permit Services Center, we now take credit cards for all transactions, and we have doubled availability of our popular “same day” permit service for small building permits. Staff is available for this service four days per week (Mondays through Thursdays) from 8:00 AM to 10AM. Building permit applications submitted at other times will continue to be classified as “over the counter,” “quick permits,” or “standard permits,” depending on the nature of the project.
