Planning and zoning
It is highly recommended all real-estate agents and prospective property owners work with the planning department on new developments, so all issues can be addressed early in the process and as efficiently as possible.
To see Nappanee's current zoning map, click here.
At times when a zoning map change is requested to permit a use outside of the established districts, the Nappanee Plan Commission will conduct a hearing and give its recommendation to the city council in a public meeting. Or, if only a small variance is needed from the adopted standards, the city's Board of Zoning Appeals will consider the matter, also in a public meeting. Both of these applications can be initiated by contacting Don Lehman in the zoning department.

The weed control ordinance allows city officials to step in and take necessary action if a property owner has failed to maintain the unimproved portion of a property. A junk and abandoned vehicle ordinance prevents inoperable cars and trucks from becoming neigborhood eyesores and targets for vandalism and other crimes. The minimum housing standards sets the rules for rental properties.
