2014 Zoning Ordinance

Slide text: 
Citywide Zoning Ordinance Adopted

For several years the Planning and Codes Department has been working on a complete overhaul of the City’s Zoning Ordinance. Community members, Planning Commissioners, City Council, and City staff have spent hundreds of hours  updating the zoning ordinance to reflect the needs of the community and the Comprehensive Plan. This ordinance was adopted by City Council on August 18, 2014.


If you have any questions about the zoning designation of a commercial property please contact Zoning and Codes Staff as various websites are being updated, including the Pickens County Tax Assessor's website. No residential zoning designations have been changed.
