Natomas Basin Information

  • All permits issued for new construction and substantial improvement will need to have a Hold Harmless Agreement on File (Form CDD-0315)
  • The fees for the construction of new Single Family Residences in the Natomas Basin have been approximated and can be downloaded here. These estimates are based on four different square footages and are intended to be used as a guide only
  • For the construction of subdivisions, builders have the option to submit their Master Plans (MP’s) electronically. Visit the Electronic Plan Check (EPC) page to obtain detailed information on submittal requirements for Residential Electronic Plan Check. EPC allows for more efficient review and processing of these plans. Should you have questions regarding these requirements, please, email  
  • Master Plan approvals (MP’s) that were approved prior to FEMA’s reclassification of the Natomas Basin to AE designation (circa 2008), will need to be reviewed for compliance with current building codes (i.e. submitted for plan review).
  • All construction, plans and fees will need to be consistent with current standards, codes, ordinances and rates on any new construction and on lots where construction was commenced but not completed.
  • Expedited plan review for Master Plans (MP’s) is not available at this time.
  • Should you have any further questions regarding the building permit application process, please email or call (916)808-5838.
