New Online Process To Streamline Building And Land Use Permits

In an effort to provide more efficient and transparent customer service, the Humboldt County Planning and Building Department later this month will transition to a new online system to process building and land use permits. Beginning Sept. 24, the Planning and Building Department will conduct business using the Accela system, an industry leader in the licensing software space. This new platform will provide enhanced automation services related to processing permits, reduce the reliance on paper systems, and provide better communication with citizens, as well as between departments and agencies reviewing development projects. This is an important step to the department’s goal of moving towards more paperless systems.
