Alternative Review Program

An applicant may elect to use the Alternative Review Program for those projects in compliance with County Title 22 (Section 52.080 Subsection B). This process allows an applicant to obtain technical assistance, inspection and sign-off by either the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) or the Resource Conservation District (RCD). 

The Planning Division of the Department of Planning and Building assists with this; please see the Alternative Review Program Page for additional details and related forms and resources.
