Land Use Planning Review Processes

Due to ongoing flood recovery efforts, the Land Use Department is currently controlling the number of planning applications accepted to meet the resources we have available, and a waitlist for new planning applications is being managed. Once application packets are prepared following your pre-application conference, please contact the Land Use office to get on the waitlist or to check waitlist status.

The planning or development review processes through the Land Use Department are necessary to achieve a number of goals. First and foremost, is to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens while at the same time protecting the rights of property owners.

The type and scope of process will depend on the scope of the proposal and/or the particular circumstances on your parcel. The staff is committed to letting you know as early in your project as possible what process will be required and the steps necessary. The planning review process is our administrative means of consistently and efficiently enforcing the County’s Land Use policies and regulations. See the Planning Process Fee Schedule.
