Placer County just made it much easier to apply and proceed with the acquisition of a building permit.

The newly launched online permitting process is now available on the Building Services Division’s online portal.

The services will allow contractors to obtain the permits used for a variety of purposes, including:

  • Heating and air conditioning installation
  • Reroofing
  • Water heater replacement
  • Solar installation
  • Windows
  • Minor plumbing
  • Mechanical and electrical work

The county said the online tool is an “effort to improve services and ease the process of getting a building permit.”

Before this was set up, getting a permit required a trip to the county’s building services office in either Auburn or Tahoe City.



In an upcoming expansion of online tools, licensed contractors will be able to submit small projects, including deck, patio covers, swimming pools and single-family dealing in tracts.

The county anticipates that all permit types will be available online to both homeowners and contractors later this year.
