Vacation of Line: First you will need to locate a survey plat of your property. On a copy of this survey you will have a professional surveyor or engineer designate which line will be adjusted and how it will be adjusted. Next you will need to complete the application. Please note, If you are adjusting a line that will affect someone else’s property the owner of that property will also need to sign the application. Finally you will need to submit your application along with a copy of your survey to the Planning & Zoning Department for approval. Prior to picking-up your plat you will need to pay the application fee.

Conditional Use Permit (CUP): A conditional use permit (CUP) authorizes a use not routinely allowed on a property without review of how the use will affect the area and adjacent properties. A CUP requires a public hearing and, if approved, adherence to specific conditions. The County Code describes uses for each zoning district that may be permitted with a CUP (for example, a church may be permitted in an agricultural zone with a CUP). More information about CUPs and conditional zoning can be found in County Code Sec. 74-671 through 74-677.

A cash proffer policy was established in 2006 for those interested in pursuing residential rezonings.
