Sacramento County announced on Thursday that it has joined the one-day permit program called permit simplicity. A program of Region Builders Economic Growth Institute, permit simplicity streamlines the permit process for tenant improvements to an existing building.
Professional architects and engineers who submit plans for the program must be pre-qualified to participate. Sacramento County worked with the Region Builders organization to customize the program for projects in the County’s unincorporated areas. The County will honor the Permit Simplicity Program for tenant improvement projects that are 5,000 square feet or less.
“Our one-stop Building Assistance Centers already offer great service to our customers,” Sacramento County Supervisor Patrick Kennedy said. “The addition of the Permit Simplicity Program shows our commitment to helping small businesses save time and money when they expand or remodel.”
To qualify for the Permit Simplicity program in Sacramento County, applicants must obtain sign-off or approval from all necessary departments and agencies prior to submittal to the Building Permits and Inspections Division. Projects that do not comply with the California Building Code will require additional review and a permit might not be issued the same day.
“The ability to obtain a permit in one day is a powerful tool that positions Sacramento County as a great place for small businesses to locate and grow,” Joshua Wood, CEO of Region Builders said. “We applaud Supervisor Kennedy for his leadership in streamlining the permitting process with this game-changing program,” .
Earlier this year Region Builders guided permit simplicity programs that were adopted by the city’s of Elk Grove and Rancho Cordova.
“The Building Department is excited to pilot this innovative program,” Shane Diller, Elk Grove City Code Enforcement Manager said. “We recognize the value it presents for our residents, businesses, and the building community.”
