Zoning Permits

What is zoning?

Any type of remodeling (interior and/or exterior), sub-divisions of acreage, boundary line adjustments, rezoning, electrical, mechanical, fences, decks, porches (covered & uncovered), driveways, new construction, tent set-up, signs of all types, detached garage or metal sheds, and accessory buildings. If you don't see your project listed, call the zoning administrator at 540-713-4062 for more information. If you go to Rockingham County first, your chances of being sent back to the town for a permit is about 99.99%.

"Zoning is a device of democratic people for mutual protection. The Protection is from those who recognize no rights of others, insist upon all rights for themselves. Zoning is the best method so far devised for directing building development for the combined purpose of securing safety from fire and accident, protection of health, morals, comfort, prosperity and general welfare, preservation of property values and improvement, and beautifying of towns. Our right to property is the same as our right to liberty; it is subject to the greater rights of all the citizens." (copied from Roanoke Planning Commission)
