About the Commission

The Scott County Planning and Zoning Commission is made up of seven citizens appointed by the County Board of Supervisors with the majority residing in the unincorporated areas of the county. Formerly the Zoning Commission, the Planning and Zoning Commission was created in 1979 by the Board of Supervisors to act as their advisory group on all planning and zoning matters including the adoption, implementation and update of the development plan, zoning ordinance, and subdivision ordinance. This includes zoning and rezoning land, subdivision planning and reviewing site plans in unincorporated Scott County.
