Contra Costa County is a ‘fireworks-free zone’; the sale, possession or use of fireworks of all types and sizes (including Safe & Sane fireworks) are banned in the county.

This includes the unincorporated areas as well as the cities.

Fireworks purchased in neighboring counties, other states, or over the internet are illegal to use or possess in Contra Costa County. Offenders could also face up to $500 in fines. Possession of dangerous fireworks, like M-80’s or cherry bombs, constitute a felony and could result in fines of up to $5,000 and imprisonment.

Violators may either receive a citation in the case of a misdemeanor, or they could be booked in jail for felony use or possession of fireworks, according to the Sheriff.
Supervisor Andersen Welcomes CAPA Summer Intern
Claire Chu is a rising senior at Monte Vista High School and comes to Supervisor Andersen’s office through the CAPA internship program. Her curiosity and involvement with the community has prompted her to work in the Supervisor's office. Going into her fourth year of journalism, Claire will be the editor-in-chief for The Stampede, Monte Vista’s school newspaper.

Journalism has brought forth new passions for Claire, such as the business, statistics, and psychology aspects of running the paper. In addition, she has served on the Danville Youth Council for two years as the Outreach Subcommittee Chair and Secretary working with and for the children and teens in the area. In school, Claire is president of National Honor Society, treasurer of Kiwanis International’s Key Club, and an organizer for American Red Cross blood drives. Outside the classroom, she enjoys playing the piano, making shirts and bracelets, doing yoga, watching Survivor, cooking, being an active member in her church, and keeping up with the latest news stories. She hopes that this internship opportunity will give her some skills to pursue the data science and behavioral economics fields.

Throughout her internship so far, Claire has learned about the roles of political leaders in her community. She looks forward to diving deeper into the impact of local government on our county as her internship continues.  
State of the District in San Ramon with Supervisor Andersen
Where Drones Fly, We Can’t Fight Fires or Deliver Emergency Medical Services from Above!
Firefighting aircraft, such as air tankers and helicopters, and emergency medical air ambulances, fly at very low altitudes, typically just a few hundred feet above the ground – in the same airspace where hobby drones typically operate. This creates the very real potential for mid-air collisions that could injure or even kill airborne and ground-based first responders, as well as civilians in the flight path.

Because of this potential for collision, when a drone is detected flying over or near a wildfire or other emergency scene, air operations must be suspended until all drones flying in the fire area are removed. This delay can decrease the effectiveness of wildfire suppression operations or emergency medical responses, allowing wildfires to grow larger and possibly delaying arrival of life saving transport, in some cases, increasing danger to lives and property.

Already this fire season in both west Contra Costa County and in the Camino Pablo area of Moraga, civilian drones flying near a wildfire prevented firefighters from utilizing on-scene helicopters to fight the fire. This created additional danger for firefighters and civilians alike and wasted costly resources otherwise available to extinguish this fire.

These are just two of many recent incidents in which hobby drones have caused disruptions in the suppression of California's wildfires. These civilian drones are an increasingly common sight across the state, and while they can be fun toys and valuable tools for professional flyers, a drone flown irresponsibly can pose a serious danger, particularly during wildfire and other emergencies.

Similar to a crime tip line, anyone with information about irresponsible drone operators flying close to disasters scenes and other emergencies can call CAL FIRE’s 1-844-DRONE11 (1-844-376-6311) drone hotline. This telephone line is not for reporting emergencies.

Your local firefighters, along with CAL FIRE, ask the public to never fly drones near wildfires and other emergency scenes. Remember: If You Fly, We Can't!

Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Incentive Program
Contra Costa County is currently in the process of implementing the June 18, 2019, Board of Supervisors direction to get the ADU program fully up and running. 

Contra Costa County is encouraging property owners with un-permitted second living units, also known as accessory dwelling units, or ADUs, to legalize their units. The ADU Incentive Program offers property owners an opportunity for a limited time to apply for and obtain required permits without paying penalty fees that would typically be associated with previously un-permitted construction. The County is interested in working with property owners to legalize their existing un-permitted ADUs with the minimum changes and disruptions necessary to achieve compliance with zoning and building code requirements.

Program Process
The process starts with an initial, informal meeting with County staff to review the conditions on the property. Interested property owners should click here (add link) to schedule an initial meet ing. To make this meeting with County staff most productive, the property owner should bring photographs showing the conditions on the property, a drawing showing all property lines and structures on the property, and a floor plan of the un-permitted ADU.

The requirements necessary to obtain permits will vary depending on the type of ADU. For example, conversion of existing living area in the primary residence into a separate living unit involves a different set of steps than conversion of an un-permitted cottage or other detached structure. 

At the conclusion of the initial meeting, County staff will provide guidance to the property owner concerning steps required to legalize the un-permitted unit. If the property owner does not wish to proceed with a project after receiving feedback from County staff, the property owner can withdraw from the program with no penalty. County staff will not keep any record of the initial meeting.

The steps required to legalize an un-permitted unit will vary depending on the circumstances of the project, and may require the property owner to obtain approvals from multiple public agencies. To obtain these approvals, the property owner may need to hire a licensed architect, engineer or other design professional to prepare building plans for the proposed project. Building plans will be necessary to obtain building permits.

Fees and Costs
While less expensive than building and permitting a new single family residence, there are still costs and fees for an un-permitted ADU depending on the circumstances. Property owners are encouraged to obtain cost estimates for construction from one or more licensed contractors to ensure the building is habitable and safe,

The property owner will also need to pay permit fees to the County, but the County will waive penalty fees for planning and building permits. Property owners may also be required to pay fees to other agencies such as the local school district, the local fire district, utility providers and other agencies depending on the nature of the project. The County is currently working to reduce or eliminate traffic mitigation fees for ADUs. County staff will assist the property owner to develop a fee estimate for the project and provide guidance on which public agencies the property owner will need to contact to pay fees and obtain approvals.

Prior to obtaining building permits, the property owner may also be required to pay fees to the County Public Works Department, the local school district, the local fire district, utility providers and other agencies depending on the nature of the project. These fees can be significant, depending on the project. The County is currently working to reduce or eliminate traffic mitigation fees for ADUs. County staff will assist the property owner to develop a fee estimate for the project and provide guidance on which public agencies the property owner will need to contact to pay fees and obtain approvals.

For more information or to get an application started, contact Keith Dennison, Application and Permit Center Manager, at (925) 674-7750.
