How do I Obtain a Permit?
Note: Zoning Ordinance regulations may apply. Please check Parcel Data at http://edcgov.us/Planning to determine flood zone status (Zones A, A1-A-9, A14, A24, B, or AE). If in a flood zone, new regulations require evidence that the project is at or above the Base Flood Elevation (BFE). Please contact Planning Services at 530-621-5355 for further information.
