Building and Zoning

The Department of Building and Zoning administers the Sangamon County Zoning Ordinance, adopted April 22, 1969. The Department accepts petitions for zoning amendments, variances, and conditional permitted uses. The Zoning Board of Appeals then conducts a public hearing and makes a recommendation to the County Board for the final decision. We also take Home Occupation, Fence, Temporary Use and Ag-Exempt Permits and Building Permits.
