COVID 19 – Special procedures

OCCL staff are working, with limited office time.  We will be making every attempt to maintain full office functions during this time.  Please note the following temporary changes in practices and procedures:

  • The physical office is closed to the public.
  • Inquiries, correspondences, and smaller applications (site plan approval requests) should be sent in via email rather than regular email to [email protected]
  • We will be sending out scanned permits via email rather than via regular mail.  
  • Please contact staff through email or cell; we will not have people in the physical office to answer phones there.  Updated contacts are here.
  • Information regarding Board of Land and Natural Resources meetings can be found on their website.  Meetings are live streamed here.
  • The DLNR Enforcement Line is still staffed, at 643-DLNR
