The department administers the:
  • Flood Insurance Program
  • Subdivision regulations
  • Zoning ordinance
The department provides staff for:
  • Planning Commission
  • Board of Zoning Appeals

Assistance Goal

Whether by telephone or in person, it is our goal to provide prompt, courteous, and professional assistance. We invite the public to call upon us with their inquiries regarding such matters as zoning, floodplain management, annexation, land development, land subdivision, historic zoning, and property addressing.

The information on these pages is intended to be basic information regarding the department. We invite you to view extended documents like our Historic Bottoms Area Land Use Plan on this website.  Feel free to call or to visit the Planning Department in person:
