Year-Round Permitting & Expert Conservation
Federal approval of the County’s habitat plan will return permitting fully to the County. That means most permit applicants with gophers, or other federally-protected species can get answers year-round, and apply for permits anytime. No waiting for gopher inspection season. It will also mark the beginning of a more robust approach to habitat conservation at the County.
