What We Do

Permit Sonoma, also known as the Permit and Resource Management Department (PRMD), is Sonoma County's consolidated land use planning and development permitting agency. Virtually any land development or construction that takes place in the unincorporated area of Sonoma County (outside the city limits of the nine cities) is reviewed, permitted, and inspected by Permit Sonoma. The department was created as part of a countywide reorganization in 1995 by bringing staff from five separate departments together under one roof and with one common mission.

We are organized into various Divisions and Sections all working together to meet the goals of that mission:
