Resiliency Permit Center
The Resiliency Permit Center (RPC), overseen by Permit Sonoma, is exclusively dedicated to the residential reconstruction permitting needs of unincorporated Sonoma County related to the 2017 Sonoma Complex Fire and 2019 Kincade Fire. (Visit the main Permit Center for non-residential rebuilds.)
Located at 448 Fiscal Drive in Santa Rosa, immediately north of the Permit Sonoma entrance, we are a one stop shop for all residential permits related to the Sonoma County Complex Fires. We have streamlined the permit application and review process targeting 5 days as the maximum comment response time.
For less complex projects, we will return comments within 3 days or further expedite with over the counter, same day approval.
Permit Sonoma and the Resiliency Permit Center have moved from physical to virtual operations. Both public offices are physically closed. Below are pertinent resources to learn about this transition:
