GO-Biz would like to recognize Sacramento County as its first County Streamlining Superstar. With two new Building Assistance Centers opened this year, customers are raving about the comprehensive building, planning and related services now available in one location. Gone are the days when customers had to visit multiple buildings and service areas to get the information they needed; now most everything is available in the centers either in person or via video conferencing.
The Downtown Building Assistance Center, located at 827 7th Street, Sacramento, is a full service center offering Building Permits and Inspections, Engineering and Survey (SIPS), Planning and Environmental, Transportation, Water Resources and Metro Fire.
The Goethe Road Building Assistance Center offers Building Permits and Inspection, Planning, Code Enforcement, and Engineering and Survey (SIPS) two-days a week. Other departments can be reached via video conferencing. Both Centers offer free Wi-Fi, charging areas, TVs and coffee/water while you wait. Plus customers may use conference rooms equipped for video conferencing.
"The new centers are much more convenient for the general public. It's easier now that you don't have to visit multiple departments," said Greg Hatfield, Hatfield Development Consulting.
“I really appreciate the new set up! It’s so convenient and helpful to have almost all the different County departments represented in one room,” said Butch Hage, Construction Manager and Facilities Director at Bradshaw Christian School.
“Sacramento County has combined modern day technology with good old-fashioned collaboration and teamwork to make it easier to do business, making them deserving of a Streamlining Superstar Award,” said Paul Martin, Deputy Director for Permit Assistance.
