The 2020 permitting season was a record setting year for the Land Administration team and 2021 appears to be shaping up to be even busier.

As we move towards the 2021 permitting season, the land administration team wants to remind everyone of the importance of knowing and having marked the lot boundaries, buildable area or SWAF placement zone prior to commencing any permitted activity.

If you have questions about allowable construction or the District’s permitting process, please contact the appropriate Land Administrator in the table below.
