Planning and Zoning Roles and Responsibilities - The Zoning Administrator
Download Full Text
The availability of staff to assist in performing planning and zoning functions varies widely from community to community. At a minimum, every community that has adopted a zoning ordinance must have an official charged with administration of the ordinance. The zoning administrator’s responsibilities with regard to the day-to-day interpretation and administration of the ordinance are defined in the ordinance. The zoning ordinance establishes the procedures that citizens must follow any time they wish to build or alter any structure in the community.
