Planning & Zoning

The Planning and Zoning Department is involved in the safety, convenience, order, and the general welfare of the County. The Department is responsible for preparing and maintaining the County’s Comprehensive plan, which serves as a blueprint and policy guide for the growth of the community. The staff attempts to provide guidance to every citizen, resident or business on interpretation and administration of the adopted Ordinances, such as the Unified Development Code, Development Standards and Sign Ordinance.
