Humboldt County Planning & Building Department Is Updating Their Digital Permit Application Submissions Process

Press release from the County of Humboldt:Humboldt County Seal 2017

The Humboldt County Planning & Building Department began requiring permit application packages to be submitted digitally in 2023. This new requirement has met the department’s goals to streamline the permit application process for both staff and the community by reducing travel, in person waiting time, and costs to produce paper plans.

To ensure the continued success of the digital permit application process and provide more support to applicants, the Planning & Building Department has taken additional steps to make further improvements.

Beginning Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2024, all permit applications, including building permits and planning permits, will be submitted directly to the county’s permit processing system. Using the Accela Citizen Access Customer Portal, you can submit your digital pre-applications and pay the appropriate application fee or deposit online by credit card or e-check directly. Additionally, contractors can obtain instant building permits online for all “over the counter” permits without having to visit the department in person.

To learn more on how to use Accela and find support resources, please visit the county’s Online Permit Management webpage. Community members who are unable to submit a digital application should email  [email protected] or call 707-445-7245 for assistance.

Very bad idea. Paper trails are still important in this day and age. Any system attack or glitch is still a threat as is both an EMP or CME.

This also brings to question why the County wants to discriminate against those still using cash. Call your commissioner. Not everyone carries or uses credit cards or debit cards for transactions. As the saying goes, In God we Trust, all others pay cash.

Well at least this way there is less cash to ‘misplace’ in the offices anyway

Are they going to start charging people an hourly rate to process these applications? They discriminate against the Cannabis applicants and charge them like $100 an hour any time work is done on permit applications.

Saw a meme the other day.

“Stop complaining about your life. There are people actually living in California.”

Wait as the rollout of what has created the political catastrophe in California is rolled out globally.

Do not consent and do voice complaints as a constituency weekly. You choose your topics at the appropriate level and bring it to your U.S. Senators, Congressperson, State Legislators, Mayor and Council, County Commissioner and Board of Supervisors. These days we all need to wake up, and soon.

Merry Christmas
