Business and Development Services

Our Business and Development Services teams are here to guide you through the local approval process for your business license or to obtain approval and/or permits for local development construction projects. Multiple Washoe County Community Service Departments (CSD) make up Development Services from Business Licensing and Planning, to Engineering and Building. 


CSD is focused on public safety - steering you to the guidelines and local, adopted codes/regulations for how to complete projects safely, efficently and receive final approval.
