Planning and Zoning Commission
Rezoning of Property
The unincorporated area of Clinton County is divided into several zoning districts. Each district has various permitted uses and special exception uses. If a specific use is not permitted in a particular zoning district, it may be possible to change the zoning of the property to a district that would allow the use. Rezoning applications are submitted to the Planning and Zoning office. A Public Hearing is then held by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Commission makes a recommendation whether to approve or deny the application to the Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors also will hold a Public Hearing and make the final decision whether to approve or deny the application. The application form for rezoning is located here.
When a rezoning application applies only to specific property, the Commission considers the following factors when making its recommendation to the Board of Supervisors.
Ordinance Text Amendments
