The Zoning Department is responsible for administering the Dixie County Zoning Ordinance and related land use regulations, such as the Flood Ordinance. The Zoning staff provides responses to the general public, land development professionals and realtors inquiring about permitted land uses and development standards. The Zoning Department enforces the ordinance through the review of building permits, site plans, and subdivision proposals. In addition, the department manages the processing of all applications for re-zoning, variances, special exceptions, vested rights and appeals in accordance with State and local laws. Consistency with the Dixie County Comprehensive Plan is maintained by updating the Zoning Ordinance and related regulations on a periodic basis.
