Types of Permits
Because the Commission administers two state laws, it issues two legally different permits
San Francisco Bay permits
Suisun Marsh development permits
Applications for both permits are processed in the same way, but there are different types of each kind of permit. The size, location and impacts of a project determine which type of permit is appropriate.. In turn, the type of permit determines the information that must be provided to complete a permit application.
A brief description of each type of permit follows.
A major permit is issued for work that is more extensive than a minor repair or improvement. A public hearing is mandatory for a major permit application and the application may be reviewed by kthe commission's design and engineering advisory board.
