New Automated Permit Email Notification System


The Planning & Development Department has implemented a new automated email notification system to project applicants and contacts. This new feature will send weekly email updates to project applicants on activity affecting their permit applications. The email will provide details on the permit number, date of activity, and the type of activity that occurred in the past week.

Applicants who want to take advantage of this new feature can register their email through the Department’s Citizens Access Portal at: https://aca.sbcountyplanning.org/CitizenAccess/.

The Department’s Citizens Access Portal is designed to provide transparency of process to the community regarding the permitting activity in the unincorporated areas of Santa Barbara County. We hope that this new feature will empower our customers to track the statuses of their permits and to provide them with another platform to engage with the Department.
