Conditions for Issuance of Zoning Permits


Zoning ordinances will require that all necessary state, federal, and county permits (including Health Department septic permits) be obtained prior to a zoning permit being issued.

Reasons for Recommendation

By requiring that all necessary permits be obtained prior to the issuance of a zoning permit, jurisdictions can be sure that the requirements of all other agencies are being met by the proposed development.
