Permitting Process

Stonecrest staff will provide the applicant a routing sheet to take with them to DeKalb County to submit their review request. Fire Marshall Review and Watershed reviews must be submitted to DeKalb County Department of Planning & Sustainability for review and approval.

All fees associated with the review are to be paid directly to DeKalb County. Once the reviews are completed the DeKalb County staff will sign off on your review sheets. Please return the sheets back to the Stonecrest Community Development Department. You must have the approved sheet prior to the issuance of any permit.
