Planning & Zoning

The zoning official is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the zoning ordinance and code enforcement.  The zoning official also reviews all zoning permits, rezoning requests, conditional use permits, and residential group developments before permits are issued.  The zoning official also provides technical assistance to the Forest City Board of Planning and Adjustment.  The code enforcement department, along with the Forest City Police Department, work together to enforce local ordinances to reduce the amount of abandoned vehicles, junk vehicles, overgrown grass, trash, debris, unsafe buildings and many more ordinances within the city limits.
