The Department of Resource Management was created in 1992 as a result of the merger of four separate and previously independent departments or divisions. This move was prompted by the Board of Supervisors as both a cost saving measure as well as an effort to add greater efficiencies to the operations of these four units. The net result of the reorganization has been (1) a reduction in the number of permits required for a variety of development projects, (2) an elimination or reduction in the amount of fees associated with the processing of these applications, and (3) significant reductions in the time required to process applications. 

The Department of Resource Management is preparing for the adoption of the 2016 California Codes


The 2016 California Building Code will be in effect on January 1, 2017 and in preparation for the code changes, the Department of Resource Management is providing an opportunity for owner’s and contractor’s to defer design and structural elements for a submittal to be recognized under the existing 2013 California Codes. In order for your project to be reviewed under the 2013 California Building Code the following items must be submitted prior to 4:30 pm on Friday, December 30, 2016.

Application filing fee (all or a portion of the fee will be non-refundable)

** No processing or review will occur until the application is complete, which includes the Required Submittal Items and Deferred Submittal Items listed. Any deferred submittal items must be submitted within 6 months of the application date.

Please Note - Winter Weather Advisory:

Severe weather conditions can cause power outages, flooding and hazardous road conditions and may require the Resource Management Department  to postpone certain inspections.  We will make every effort to contact the property owner and contractor prior to inspection cancellation.  Questions or concerns may be directed to Dale J. Fletcher, Shasta County Building Official at 530.225.5761.  As always, in an emergency call 911. 



In an effort to process a high-volume and backlog of existing applications, the Department of Resource Management will be unable to process or accept new permit application submittals on Wednesdays, until further notice.  During this time, our lobby will remain open on Wednesdays for dispensing general information and issuing of permits only.  We apologize for any inconvenience during this time.
