Committee/Meeting Process

When an application is listed on a DRC agenda, property owner and/or representative will be emailed a copy of the agenda.  Each applicant is encouraged, although not required, to attend the meeting in which his/her item will be reviewed.  If an application is “Held-Over,” applicant will be notified, by telephone or email, regarding outstanding items needed in order for the DRC to complete the review process and to make an informed decision.  Outstanding items are to be submitted by Wednesday prior to the next scheduled meeting, since applicants have 30 days from date of initial application to have their project approved or denied.

Official Notices of Approval for property improvement items will be emailed to the property owner or authorized agent within two days following each DRC meeting.  Applicants must provide proof of DRC approval prior to being issued a permit by the County. It is the responsibility of the property owner to determine if County approval is required:  El Dorado County Building Department located at 2850 Fairlane Court, Building “C”, Placerville (530-621-5775).
