How to Submit Zoning Permit Applications

  

 

Applications with permitted uses and conforming projects don't require attendance at an Online Public Meeting to be issued a permit. It is not necessary to attend a PHSZD meeting to secure a permit if:​

The permit application is complete and conforms to PHSZD zoning rules, and is a permitted zoning action or use. See rules by zoning classification in the PHSZD Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance.  Download the PHSZD Ordinance in PDF format from this page. To download applications and forms, press the buttons in the box to the left. 

A conforming application doesn't request Conditional Use, Variance, Special use, additional steps, or Administrative hearing. 

The Commission will not issue zoning permits or notices of zoning determinations until all the PHSZD Zoning Permit fees are received. Send the PHSZD Permit Fee Estimate Form with any fees invoiced by the Commission. Please see PHSZD Fee Schedule for rates and conditions.​​
