Keith County began planning and zoning in the mid 1970’s. The latest Comprehensive Plan, Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations were approved in 2004 with modifications since. Keith County also has a building code, Uniform Building Code, which requires building permits for homes, mobile homes, and accessory buildings in excess of 300 square feet. There is a fee schedule included with this section.
Managing the planning, zoning and building inspection office is a professional planner whose duties include building inspection from site plan, footing, framing, and dry wall inspection to the final certificate of occupancy. Other duties include, nuisance control, flood plain management, day to day office management, staff to the Planning Commission and BOZA while representing the recommendations of the Planning Commission before the county board and special assignments from the county board.
