Application Information and Materials

Updated CRWD Rules
updates effective May 1, 2015.

Permit applications are reviewed by District staff and presented to the Board of Managers at meetings typically held the first and third Wednesday of every month. Staff makes a recommendation to the Managers who approve or deny the application based on compliance with District Rules. Applicants must submit the permit application at least 21 days prior to a regularly scheduled Board meeting to be considered for inclusion on that meeting agenda.
