Residential Permitting

General Permit Process

Permitting can be perceived as one of the most difficult, timely, and expensive processes associated with new development. The Department of Planning & Community Development and the Columbia County Building Department work alongside each other to create streamlined proceedings that are time efficient, affordable, and get you into your house sooner.

Generally, the City and County both prioritize efficient permit review and issuance. Timelines above are estimated and fall exceedingly below the State minimums for permit review. Find below additional resources and information to assist in your permitting process.
