Area Regulations


  The zoning code serves two purposes. First it explains the zoning rules that apply to each of the zoning Districts. These rules establish a list of permitted land uses in each District plus a series of specific standards for the permitted land uses that govern lot size, height of buildings, required yards and setbacks from property lines and right-of-ways. Second, the code sets forth the procedures for administering the zoning ordinance and establishes the roles and responsibilities of the zoning applicants, Zoning Administrator, Regional Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals and Elected Officials.

Since 1978, it has been the stated policy of the County of DeWitt through its Department of Planning and Zoning & DeWitt-Piatt Bi-County Health Department to condition the issuance of any building permits upon the Health Departments approval of the plans and provisions for proper handling of water.

Copies of the DeWitt County Zoning Code and DeWitt County Subdivision regulations may be obtained on line, or by contacting the Planning and Zoning office.

Other duties of this office include Floodplain management for the unincorporated areas, Plat officer and Subdivision review.
