Department of Resource Management Main Lobby

 

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.
