City Awarded Grant to Improve Planning and Building Process

Customers seeking building permits will soon have better access to information and a smoother application process with a new state-of-the-art permit center and improved website, thanks to an SB-2 Planning Grant secured by the City of Folsom. The permit center will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the customer service counter for planning, development, engineering, and building permit services. These physical and technological improvements in the Community Development Department will be done in partnership with a software system conversion so that customers seeking repairs or permits will be able to submit plans, track progress, and request inspections all electronically. The $310,000 SB-2 Planning Grant was awarded by the California Department of Housing and Community Development.
