The Planning Office issues Zoning Use Permits, Building Permits for site built homes, and Floodplain Permits. Some permits can be issued via the telephone. Manufactured Home permits and septic system permits are issued by the Health Department.

The Greenlee County Planning Department is the regulatory authority for all land use and development related activities which occur on private property within the unincorporated areas of the County. As such, persons interested in developing a piece of property in the County with a residential or nonresidential use should call the Department for additional information. The County will provide at no cost a determination of the Zoning and Floodplain status.

Anyone wishing to obtain general information on the various rules and regulations governing development is encouraged to call. The Planning Department also issues new addresses in the County.

Planners are available to work with unincorporated communities and areas to assist in developing plans addressing future growth and land uses.

The Planning and Zoning Commission meets on the 4th Monday of the month when they have business. The Commission interprets the Zoning Ordinance and decides variances, and makes recommendations to the Board of Supervisors on Zoning District changes.
