Planning and Development is responsible for the current and future land uses in all unincorporated areas of Scott County.

The County, through the adoption of a comprehensive development plan and enforcement of the county's zoning, building code, subdivision and floodplain development ordinances, is able to regulate all non-ag land uses in the unincorporated areas.

Through an intergovernmental 28E agreement the department also issues building permits for the Cities of Dixon, Donahue, LeClaire, McCausland, Panorama Park, and Riverdale.
