When building a new Single-Family home on a vacant lot, an entrance review is a part of receiving a Single-Family home building permit. A separate entrance permit application does not need to be submitted. During the building permit review, County Staff will review the proposed entrance location indicated on the site plan and work with the developer and/or property owner to ensure the entrance is located on the property according to County standards. Addresses are only granted when a residence is being built.Entrance Permit Procedure
