Based on the May 1, 2020 Health Order, we will be issuing building and engineering permits for all types of construction projects.

Due to the Santa Cruz County Shelter in Place Order, the Community Development Department is providing development services remotely, as we care about our health and yours. 


On April 1st, the Community Development Department shifted its service delivery approach to electronic means.  CDD will be accepting electronic copies of plans by appointment, and plan review will continue to be conducted by staff remotely. 


Staff is available to return voicemails, however most returns will be via email.  The best way to leave a message is to email cdd@cityofwatsonville.org or 831-768-3050.  Let us know if you need to make arrangements to submit a new application. 


Staff continues to provide Housing services.  For questions regarding eviction protections, or any other housing-related services, please call 831-768-3080 for assistance.


We understand that closure of the public counter and unavailability of in-person appointments may be inconvenient and thank you for your patience.  Please check updates on COVID-19 and City services on the City website:   www.cityofwatsonville.org     


Thank you for your understanding.  We look forward to a time when we can resume regular services.  In the meantime, please take care and stay healthy.


Sincerely,


Suzi Merriam 

Community Development Director
