Welcome to Planning & Zoning

The Planning and Zoning Department is tasked with reviewing all subdivision, planning, and zoning permit applications for compliance with the Carbon County ordinances, and for issuing them upon approval. We also provide support and oversight to the Carbon County Planning Commission as well as maintain and enforce the county’s zoning and development code.


Land Use

The county maintains a zone information chart capturing requirements for lot sizes, and allowed building sizes.

For Business License Zoning Approval, all business license applications must get zoning approval by the Planning & Zoning Director. Visit Suite 2600 to obtain approval, make sure to bring your business license application.

The county GIS team maintains a series of maps for planning and zoning of both unincorporated and incorporated areas of the county.
