Development Services

The Development Services Department was reorganized in July 2013, by consolidating the existing Planning Services, Fire Services, Building Services, Environmental Health and Certified Unified Program Agency functions with the former Public Works functions for Engineering, Road and Water Resources. Under the direction of Sutter Animal Services Authority, operations for Animal Services has been transferred to the City of Yuba City. In July 2020, Fire Services began operating under the direction of the County Administrator’s Office

This department provides essentially three types of services: permitting services (land use, planning, construction, food facility/other, environmental health, and hazardous materials - CUPA), code enforcement, and public infrastructure (engineering, road and water resources).

Our Mission Statement is:

The Sutter County Development Services Department provides coordinated and professional permitting, development and safety services to protect the health and well-being of our community.

Planning Commission

The Planning Commission acts in both an advisory role to the Board of Supervisors for projects such as general plan amendments and rezones, and in an approving role for use permits, variances and land divisions.
