Planning & Zoning

Planning & Zoning

The work objectives of the Planning Department are directly related to all levels of planning; in particular, the day to day rudiments such as zoning, subdivision and grant administration, and long range planning such as comprehensive development plans and thoroughfare plans. The Department
also disseminates information on Fair Housing laws.

PLANNING PROGRAMS
The Planning department manages daily and long range planning activities for the City of Asheboro's planning jurisdiction. Department staff process residential and commercial permits, pursue grant funding, review proposed subdivisions and commercial developments, administer the City's Zoning and Watershed Ordinances, prepare reports for public hearing, and assist the public with general development questions. Staff also works to develop plans, such as the Land Development Plan and Thoroughfare Plan, to help guide future growth. The department provides support to the City Council, Planning Board, and Board of Adjustment and works closely with other city departments.

In January of 2015, The Planning and Zoning Department began the process of updating the map portion of the Land Development Plan. The department collected input through public workshops, neighborhood meetings and gathered comments from appointed boards and the City Council. Below, please find the update process schedule. The update was approved by the City Council on October 8, 2015.

The Asheboro Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Ordinance regulate development within the city's planning jurisdiction. These documents outline requirements relating to everything from minimum lot sizes to permitted building materials in industrial districts and are available online by clicking on the specific link towards the top of this paragraph. The purpose of these ordinances is to ensure orderly, compatible, and quality development. Before beginning any project, call the Planning Department to verify all online information is current. Staff is available to answer any questions regarding City Ordinances
