Working in Development Permit Areas

Development Permit Areas (DPAs) are areas where special requirements and guidelines for any development or alteration of the land are in effect. DPA’s provide responsible development within environmentally sensitive areas and areas prone to natural hazards. Call to find out if your project needs a permit or if it is exempt.
