Land Use Regulation
HHSA promotes the health and well-being of the public through the application of environmental health principles for effective land use planning. The Land Use Regulation program reviews building permits and special use permit application requests. Assuring proper septic system design is an integral part of the program. Our participation in RMA’s Plan Review Committee prevents potential public health hazards and avoids environmental degradation that may result from improperly planned land development projects.
Land Use staff members investigate and evaluate county building permit and land use applications involving subdivision and parcel maps, site plans, special use permits, and environmental impact reports. Projects are evaluated for compliance with laws and regulations regarding sewage and solid waste disposal, domestic and public water supply, vector control, hazardous materials storage, retail food establishments, public swimming pools, and dairy siting and operation.
