Rebuilding Your Home

The Nevada County Building Department is working with fire victims through the rebuilding process, and have created permitting information on manufactured, new residence, grading, and accessory structure permitting.

Waived Permitting Fees

All County related building permit fees and County impact fees will be waived for any property affect by the fires as long as permits are applied for prior to October 10th, 2018 and the structure was previously permitted. More information on building fees can be found on the Permit Fee Estimate Form (Waived Fees).

Expedited Service and Current Building Codes

If your structure was destroyed in the fire, when you rebuild you will need to comply with current 2016 California Building Codes. Your project plan check will be expedited through the process to assist you in your recovery efforts.
