Permit Sonoma's Director’s Advisory Group was formed in March 2004 to advise the Director of the Permit and Resource Management Department on issues related to permit processing and service delivery. The Advisory Group provides input on areas where improved services or processes are needed, works with the Director and others to develop possible solutions to these issues, and provides feedback on proposals developed by Permit and Resource Management Department staff to address issues identified by the Group.
Members of the Advisory Group are selected by the Permit Sonoma Director to represent a broad cross-section of the customers served by Permit Sonoma. Members include general contractors, engineers, environmental health professionals, planning consultants, architects and others who use Permit Sonoma's services. The Group meets with the Director approximately monthly.
