Zoning Division

Staffed with a full time zoning officer, the Zoning Division is responsible for overseeing the administration and enforcement of all zoning regulations and ordinances. The Zoning Officer is required to review each application for proposed projects to assure that the project is in compliance with those laws.

A zoning permit is required for installation of:

  • Additions
  • Decks
