Approximately 2 million dollars in permit fees are now scheduled to be waived, for people seeking to rebuild their homes and other permitted structures….that were destroyed (or damaged) by the 3 recent wildfires in Monterey county. An expedited ministerial review (and approval) process is slated to be used so that people can replace permitted structures. For un-permitted structures people will still need to use the usual county permit process…including compliance with all regulatory requirements. Property owners will be able to use RV’s and trailers as temporary housing on the site as they are rebuilding. Officials will be available to discuss debris removal, and watershed emergency response, and answer other similar questions.
