Permits & Signage


Overview

The Planning and Zoning Department is responsible for aiding residents in gaining the proper permits for signage and development. This Department is also where you will go to have your case brought in front of the proper Board for an appeal to the Zoning Ordinance or Zoning of your property.

Building and Sign Permits

Planning and Zoning FAQ

  • Do I need a building permit to build a fence?

    If you’re in the floodplain, you need a building permit to build a fence.
    If you’re not in a floodplain, but you’re building a privacy fence, you need a permit.
    If you’re not in a floodplain, and you’re building any fence except a privacy fence, you do not need a permit.
