What is the conditional use permit process?

After a conditional use permit application has been formally accepted as complete, the application will be set for a public hearing, except in cases where an environmental study is required, in which case the environmental study will be prepared before a public hearing date is set. Under normal circumstances, the Kern County Planning Commission will be the decision-making body to act on the conditional use permit application. This board meets on the second and fourth Thursdays (excluding holidays) of every month and begins its meetings at 7:00 p.m. in the Board of Supervisors Hearing Chambers located on the first floor of the Kern County Administrative Center, 1115 Truxtun Avenue, Bakersfield.
