Planning & Zoning

City Hall

The Planning & Zoning Department is responsible for the land use planning, zoning administration and land development activities in the City of Marion. The department is responsible for long-range comprehensive planning and annexation. The Planning Staff reviews all plans for zoning compliance and works with developers to answer zoning questions. The staff handles all rezoning requests and serves as the staff liaison for the Planning Commission, the Zoning Board of Appeals and the city's Historic Preservation Commission.

The Planning Department is usually the first point of contact for an individual or company seeking to do a building or development project in the city limits of Marion.
