Expanded permit center provides recovery assistance in aftermath of wildfires for efficient and expedited rebuilding process .
The City of Santa Rosa has opened a new Resilient City Permit Center for property owners affected by the Sonoma County wildfires. This new permit center is in addition to the existing permit center and provides similar services, but is exclusively dedicated to fire recovery.
The Resilient City Permit Center is located at City Hall, 100 Santa Rosa Avenue in Room 6, and is open Monday thru Friday from 8am to 5pm. This additional permit center is staffed by experienced professionals equipped and ready to assist the Santa Rosa community with plan review and permit issuance related to fire damage. Staff are also available to answer questions and assist property owners as they navigate through each phase of the rebuilding process. The separate center will allow for an efficient process enabling projects to move forward quickly and collaboratively, while focusing on safety and building code compliance.
The Resilient City Permit Center and rebuild efforts will not impact the existing city permit center, which is located in Room 3 of City Hall. All permits for projects unrelated to the wildfire damage will continue to go through the permit center in Room 3. Existing projects and plans currently submitted for plan review and permit issuance should experience no impact in processing resulting from the influx of fire-related permitting needs.
The City of Santa Rosa is committed to an effective rebuilding process following the Sonoma County wildfires, and the Resilient City Permit Center will serve as a streamlined service to directly assist affected businesses and residents.
To reach the Resilient City Permit Center with rebuilding or permit questions, call (707) 543-4649.
