Welcome to the Jackson County Planning Department

The mission of the Jackson County Planning Department is to improve and promote the quality of community living and natural resources for Jackson County.  In doing so, the Department aims to balance environmental and economic vitality, in a business-principled, cost-effective, ethical manner.  The Planning Department assists land related activities in four general categories:  planning, zoning, property listing and land information.  The Department plays the lead role in the County's comprehensive planning process. 

Much of the planning that is done is to meet statutory requirements of the State, or to meet eligibility requirements of grant funding opportunities. Planning activities that take place in the department range from facilitating the planning process for towns and villages in the county, to leading the County Comprehensive Plan that is required by state statute.
