Kern County is currently pushing to become the most attractive place for investment in California and they are hoping to do this by speeding up its construction permitting process.

A new initiative is set to survey those who have applied for construction permits in the past two years, this will aim to use their feedback to benchmark and improve the speed approval process including the customer service of the permitting process. Tracking applications more efficiently and adding transparency to the approval process will all be included.

This initiative is led by a new hire who has a background in process improvement and is part of the county's broader adoption of Lean and Six Sigma strategies to help eliminate waste systematically.

These changes are not due to any complaints but instead are being made as a proactive step to help enhance the economic competitiveness of the county which will be done by providing investors with standards and certainty which include accountability and transparency.

Emphasized by the county's chief administrative officer, the hope is that satisfying local developers will lead to more investment as positive experiences are shared within the business community.
