Visibility Webcam 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.

The Department of Resource Management is currently under 2016 California Model Codes.


Shasta County Department of Resource Management is now accepting drop off of revisions and supplemental data for permits and projects currently in process. New permits and projects will not be processed through drop off. All revisions must be noted on the plans or in an accompanying response letter. If you wish to utilize the drop off submittal process a completed and signed Drop Off Submittal Form is required.

Building and Planning Drop Off Checklist


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.
