Delta Project Applicant's Guidebook

Trying to get a construction permit for a project in the Delta can be a frustrating experience because of complex and confusing local, State and Federal requirements.  To help people with new construction, additions and renovation projects in the Delta, Sacramento County has published an online guide that will simplify and clarify the necessary steps to successfully plan projects and attain permits.  Some of the chapters in this guide are also applicable to projects outside of the Delta.


The Delta Project Applicant's Guidebook includes information, tips, links, and easy-to-understand graphics. Note that Chapters 2, 3 and 4 are applicable to the entire unincorporated County. The chapters contain links to additional information where applicable.
