NDEE’s One Stop Permit Program

The One-Stop Permit Assistance Program was established to serve as a clearinghouse for information related to the Department’s various permitting processes. This program’s objective is to ensure that businesses and industry are aware of what permits they are required to apply for, what information they will need to provide in the permit application, and the permit process.

The One-Stop Program Coordinator doesn’t personally address all inquiries, but acts as a single point of contact at NDEE for Nebraska businesses, brings together appropriate NDEE staff to address questions or concerns and ensure that inquiries about potential permits, regulatory processes, and other issues receive a timely response. The one-stop program also coordinates activities with other state, federal or other assistance organizations and regulatory programs in an attempt to address questions and concerns in a timely and comprehensive manner.

NDEE’s One Stop Permit Program: Think Local

In general, most business projects require some type of permit from local city or county government. NDEE recommends contacting your local city or county government office to see if there are any local requirements that might apply. Local ordinances and regulations may be as stringent, or more stringent, than the state’s rules and regulations for many permits. In addition, many local governments require special use permits and/or a business license prior to conducting any activity within their jurisdiction.

The following is a link that lists some local government contact information throughout Nebraska:*.

The One-Stop Program Coordinator can help you find the correct local contacts for your questions.
