Planning & Zoning Department
The Planning & Zoning Department was formerly the Department of Development, or DOD.
The Benton County Planning & Zoning Department provides services related to the use and development of land as guided by the County’s goals and objectives within the Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
The Department is responsible for the administration of Local, State and Federal laws and rules such as the Development Code, Wetland Conservation Act, Shoreland regulations and Flood Plain Management. The Planning & Zoning Department offers assistance to create job opportunities, diversify the economy and increase the tax base of the County.
Benton County now accepts credit card payments at the counter and through our online permitting program.
