At this time, Land Use Unit enforcement is strictly complaint-based. The unit reviews for compliance of zoning clearances, building permits, use permits, zoning map changes, subdivisions, liquor licenses, and exemption uses. The unit also handles and presents all requests for violations and appeals of interpretive decisions by the Hearing Office.
