Virtual Appointment Overview

Virtual counter appointments are for general information only. Appointments are scheduled up to a maximum of 20 minutes and must be scheduled a minimum of 24-hours in advance. For more complex questions, or to request written determinations, the City provides other pre-application services for a fee. If you are unsure if your question is appropriate for general counter services, please contact the appropriate counter for assistance.

Before your appointment, remember to:

  • Make sure your project is within the City of Santa Barbara boundaries.
  • Have a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access.
  • The virtual counter appointments will be conducted using Zoom. Please familiarize yourself with this virtual meeting platform.
  • During the virtual counter appointment, both City staff and you can share your computer screen and electronic project documents.
  • Organize and plan for your virtual counter appointment, have an agenda, and prepare all your questions in advance.
