The City of San Rafael announced today an expanded partnership with the Marin Builders Association and Marin Economic Forum to help improve the experience for their permit customers.

The final published report will include customer service improvement recommendations as well as a collection of best practices from municipalities across the region. The data analysis and final report is prepared in partnership with the Marin Economic Forum and expected to be available by November of 2022.
