Welcome to RMA

The Resource Management Agency strives to ensure that its customer service standards are consistent with the Agency’s Mission Statement:

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

Your selected contractor will help guide your building process and schedule. For the most part, your home will get built from the ground up: starting with grading, groundwork, and foundation work, on to framing and wrapping up with walls, details and landscaping. While your contractor is leading you through the building process, they will also be helping coordinate a series of milestone-based inspections. These ensure each step of your new home meets code standards and keeps the progress moving.

Key Activities

  1. Once Building and Safety has approved your permit application and has issued your permit, you are ready to begin building.
