Planning and Zoning Administration

The Planning and Zoning Department staff is responsible for plans and studies that help provide a framework for the future of Kenton County communities. Staff pursues this through development of comprehensive plans, conduct of specialized planning studies, and interaction with local citizens. Staff also performs the day-to-day functions which promote the desirable community envisioned by those plans and studies. These functions include reviewing zoning permits, handling board of adjustments issues, pursuing zoning violations, reviewing zoning text and map amendments, and meeting requests for zoning information.
