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.
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.
Expanded Support in Evaluating Rebuilding Construction Proposals
The County’s Resiliency Permit Center will now be offering Bid Proposal Reviews to assist fire survivors in reviewing construction bids from potential contractors. These bid reviews will be offered at no cost to fire survivors to help you determine whether the scope and pricing of construction bids are appropriate for your rebuilding projects. Contact the Resiliency Permit Center to make an appointment with staff to review your construction bids.
