To improve customer service, streamline projects, and to align public infrastructure and private development to further County goals in attainable housing, reliable transportation, and sustainable environment.
The departments of Public Works and Planning were integrated in 2022-23 to form the Community Development and Infrastructure Department (CDI). The integration will result in the opening of a Unified Permitting Center (UPC), which will co-locate all County agencies involved in land use permits at one public counter to provide coordinated, customer-focused service and more efficient permitting.
The CDI budget represents a commitment to providing a built environment that is affordable, equitable, resilient and safe through stewardship of the County General Plan, an efficient Unified Permit Center, administering vital affordable housing funds, maintaining over 600 miles of roads, addressing buildings and public infrastructure impacted by climate change, and making strategic investments in the built environment for future generations. By integrating community planning and public works functions as a unified department and budget, services and projects are better aligned to deliver results.
