Joshua trees are now protected by the State of California as a candidate for listing as an endangered species. At this time, the County cannot issue a permit to take (by removal or transplanting) any Joshua tree.

Due to the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the effective dates of plans utilizing the 2016 editions of the California Building Codes were extended from July 1, 2020 to October 1, 2020.  Applications that do not have a permit issued by October 1, 2020 will be considered expired, and applicants will be required to update corresponding plans based on the 2019 California Building Codes.  The same application number can be utilized, but additional fees may be required.
