Planning and Zoning Committee
The Planning and Zoning Department consists of several different sections [Planning, Zoning, Land and Water Conservation, On-Site Waste, Water Resources (Groundwater), Geographic Information System (GIS), and Economic Development]. This configuration is the result of a reorganization that took place in the late 1980's, when the current Department was created out of several independent departments/functions. Our Department strives to operate efficiently and effectively to find the best way to provide services to the residents of Portage County.
To protect and promote the health, safety, and general welfare of all citizens and visitors of Portage County through providing long-range planning services, and professional administration and equitable enforcement of applicable County Codes and Ordinances, and State laws/codes relating to land use and development, resource conservation, and surface and groundwater protection.
