COVID-19 UPDATE: Our office is now fully open to the public from 8:00am-4:30pm Monday - Friday. Masks or face coverings are required to enter the building. However, land use applications and building and electrical permits are being successfully processed by email, mail, fax and through the use of our online portal. We strongly encourage our citizens to continue using these alternative means to obtain permits.

We have resumed holding public hearings before the Planning Commission and Board of Adjustment using social distancing practices. Masks or other face coverings are required to enter the building and participate.

Additionally, we are making safety modifications to our lobby to better distance the employees from the public and we anticipate those being completed in early August.

We appreciate your patience, understanding and cooperation as we work through this pandemic together. Please give us a call if you have any additional questions or concerns.
