What are facility permits?

Developers are required to build public improvements (sidewalks, curbs/gutter, street lights, roadway, etc.) within County rights-of-way to County standards. Requirements for new developments are outlined in the Notice of Decision.

Work on County roadways requires a permit. Facility permits are issued when projects have complex engineering design and review. The permits allow developers to enter the rights-of-way  to make  the specified improvements.

Right-of-way permits are issued for simpler projects, such as sidewalk replacements.
