The mission of the Resource Management Agency, in cooperation with the public and our partner agencies, is to protect the consumer and community’s health, safety, and environment by carrying out adopted laws and policies, and educating, assisting, and empowering Ventura County residents and businesses to be good stewards of the land and our resources.


In addition, RMA has identified those core values which will guide us in carrying out our mission. These values are directly related to our customer service and include:

  • Honesty, hard work, and ethical behavior

  • Transparency and accountability

  • Equitable treatment and respect of all constituents

  • Excellence in service delivery


During the permitting process, various fees are assessed and collected by B&S. 

Depending on the size, scope, and nature of your project, the amount of the fees will vary. 

The location of your project may also have an impact on the amount of fees due. This is because some projects located on sites identified as Flood Zones, Hazardous Fire Zones, or Geologically Hazardous Areas require more time to review and inspect to ensure they will be designed and constructed to be safe for occupants.

Building Permit and development fees, such as Plan Review Fees, Building Inspection Fees, State of California fees, and certain other development fees, are collected by B&S during the permitting process.

Other fees for Special Districts and other County agencies, such as School District Fees, Traffic Impact Fees, Sewer Connection Fees, and Water Service Connection Fees, may also apply to your project.  They are typically calculated and collected by the respective Agency or District.  These fees will also vary depending on the size, nature, and location of the project.
