Planning and Zoning:
On behalf of Nappanee’s Planning and Zoning Department, welcome to our website. It is a privilege to help lead Nappanee’s future development in a direction that best reflects the aspirations of its residents, past, present, and future. Planning and Zoning helps create and maintain the city ordinances to protect the health and safety of community members as it reflects land use and real estate markets. You can read these ordinances and other helpful materials on the Useful Information tab.
Planning and Zoning serves on the Plan Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, and the Historic Preservation Commission. We also have members on the Electrical Licensing Board. Planning and Zoning has partnered with the Nappanee Police Code Enforcement Department to ensure our ordinances are easily available for residents to report violations and keep our community flowing well and looking great.
In addition, Planning and Zoning reviews all building permits for compliance with our ordinances. Other responsibilities include maintaining the official Zoning Map, preparing, and updating the Comprehensive Plan, and much more. We recommend checking out all our department tabs to learn more about Planning and Zoning and more about our great city!
