Planning & Zoning

Planning and Community Development Division is a multi-function division, administering land-use through the City of Gainesville Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Ordinance and the Comprehensive Land Use Plan.

Zoning is comprehensive in scope, encompassing land use, zoning, planning plat and site plan review.

Coordination is provided between public sectors and private interests using zoning to implement land use regulations after public hearings with Planning and Zoning Commission, the City Council and the Zoning Board of Appeals as needed.

The staff maintains zoning maps and files, and reviews plats and engineering site plans. The Planning Technician works with other divisions and departments as needed.
