Planning

The Planning Department provides assistance and direction to property owners and residents and also serves as technical staff support for the Board of Commissioners, Planning Board, Tree Board, Technical Review Committee and Board of Adjustment. Through the preparation of land use plans and the administration of existing land use ordinances, it is our goal to ensure responsible and thoughtful land development so as to foster a thriving and healthy community.

The Planning Department handles tasks such as flood plain development permitting, minor and major subdivision plat review, new address assignments, code enforcement, site plan and landscape approval, zoning inspections, and issuance of building permits.

Long range planning projects include maintaining the comprehensive plan and multi-modal transportation plan, performing computerized mapping using Geographical Information Systems (GIS), conducting population and housing studies, and responding to grant and funding opportunities.
