Our team of professional administrative, technical, and support staff carry out responsibilities involving administration and enforcement of County and State Codes related to regional comprehensive land use planning, development, construction and alteration of buildings within the County.

The Permit Center, located on the main floor of the Public Works Building, is designed to provide for the majority of County land use, development, permitting and construction plan review functions at a single, convenient location. In most cases, the Center eliminates the necessity of traveling to other buildings for information, clearances or approvals.
