Fast Track Permitting

One Stop Permit Center
Merced’s One Stop Permit Center is a coordinated effort of the City’s Inspection Services, Planning and Engineering Divisions. The goal of the Center is to expedite all development permits, including planning, zoning, environmental, and others.

The One Stop Permit Center is the starting point for all your project permits. The Center staff works closely with their counterparts in the Economic Development Department to assure a smooth development process. Throughout all permitting processes, project managers are assigned to assist you in quickly navigating through the process, resulting in a proven record for delivering plan checks and other permits in a timely manner.
