Central Permit Facility
Description: This facility functions as a "one-stop shop" for those needing permits from the County's Planning, Building and Development Departments, the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission, and the Lake County Health Department. The facility includes sustainable (green) features, including a 8,000 square foot green roof that absorbs precipitation and reduces stormwater runoff, as well as helps regulate the temperature of the building. The County also incorporated other best management practices, including use of natural native plantings, bio-infiltration and vegetated wales to reduce stormwater runoff.
