Welcome

The Logan County Zoning Office administers the Logan County Zoning Ordinance. The zoning ordinance applies to the unincorporated areas of the county, as well as villages that do not have a zoning ordinance. The zoning ordinance generally provides regulations that govern the use of property and includes such things as zoning districts, minimum lot sizes, setbacks, flood plain regulations, sign regulations, and variance criteria.

The zoning office is also responsible for the review and issuance of building permits and the processing of applications for variances, conditional uses, special use permits, and rezoning requests.

Requests for zoning determinations, minimum lot size required for subdividing property, and general questions as to what is allowed on a property are common inquiries received in this office.
