A Type I Application is submitted for proposals that do not require discretion in order to approve the application. We simply review whether you meet the standards. The decision is issued by county staff.

Multiple permits may be included under a single Type I application.

Before You Submit

Please begin with our Ask a Planner form. Our Planner on Duty will contact you in the order in which your application or request was received. The planner on duty will briefly go over your project with you, and let you know what permits are required and what type of application to submit.

They will give you a zoning checklist that is specific to your project. Each property is different, so this checklist will help make sure your submission is complete.
