Services include:

We provide and review application forms for land use permits, and issue permits for projects which conform to the laws.

The Page County Zoning and Subdivision Ordinance requires building permits prior to any new construction within the county.  Permits are required for homes, equipment & livestock buildings, grain bins, swimming pools, etc.

Should an activity be agricultural in nature it may be exempt from fees, but buildings and other improvements are still subject to setbacks and other criteria. A permit is required in any case.

Non-compliance of this requirement could involve the county attorney and possible shut down of construction or removal of improvements. If you have questions, contact the Page County Zoning Administrator.
