ABOUT US

The Land & Water Planning Office develops, implements and enforces the County Zoning and Septic Ordinances by maintaining official records and maps, site analysis, reviewing sewer designs, granting permits, and processing applications for zone changes, conditional use permits and variances. 

This Office works together with adjacent counties to develop and maintain watershed plans and acts as the administrator for the Wetland Conservation Act. 

The Land & Water Planning Director is also the Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) Manager. This office works closely with the local SWCD on wetland, agricultural and shoreland projects.
