During this unprecedented time, the Town’s role is to maintain the health and well-being of the community while providing permitting services that are in compliance with the Contra Costa Health Order (the “Order”). Certain construction projects and activities are allowed, within constraints, as long as social distancing practices are utilized.In addition, the Order specifically defines housing construction as Essential Infrastructure (Section 10c) and is therefore authorized to be submitted and processed. However, all statutory timelines related to all land use, subdivision and zoning applications have been suspended by Town’s Urgency Ordinance No. 2020-02, adopted March 17, 2020.
