Planning & Zoning Division

Our Purpose
To contribute to the quality of life in Jefferson City through land use planning and administration of development codes.

What We Do
The Planning Division is responsible for the current and future physical development of the City.  With the assistance of the Planning and Zoning Commission, Board of Adjustment, and City Council, staff implement planning goals contained within the City's Comprehensive Plan, neighborhood plans, and other city planning related studies in order to maintain and improve the quality of life for residents and visitors of the City, achieve a high quality physical environment, and regulate an appropriate pattern of land use across the City.

Planning Division functions are separated into "current planning" and "long-range city planning".  Current planning activities include processing of applications for rezoning, special use permits, variances, subdivision plats, annexations, review of development plans, and implementing long range planning goals.  Long range planning efforts include preparing current and future land use plans, preparing neighborhood plans, preparing updates to development related sections of the City Code, and updating the Comprehensive Plan.
