Building and Zoning

The Building and Zoning Division is comprised of five (5) major activities: Building Code Administration; Contractor Licensing; Impact Fee Assessment; Permit Center; and Building and Zoning Compliance.

The Building Code Administration activity reviews building plans for compliance to county, state, and federal codes, and inspects construction for consistency with the approved plans.

The Contractor Licensing activity administers a county-wide database, issues competency cards and listings, and investigates complaints of unlicensed activity.

The Impact Fee Assessment activity reviews building plans for assessment of impact fees based on the use and location.

The Permit Center activity processes all building permit applications from intake to issuance; reviews applications for zoning setbacks and allowed uses based on the parcel’s zoning classification; and scans all documents and plans for records retention.  The County’s on-line permitting system, Connect Live Permits, is managed by this activity.

The Building and Zoning Compliance activity investigates complaints of potential County ordinance violations, and performs code related inspections.
