Building, Planning & Land Use
The City's Community Development department works with the business community of Johns Creek to ensure land development and zoning regulations are fairly administered with courtesy and respect, consistent with the policies and goals established by the City Council and the adopted Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
Community Development is responsible for managing zoning and long-range planning, permitting, inspections, code enforcement and other activities in support of the City's mission, vision and values.
The department has four divisions:
Through these divisions, the department provides comprehensive land-use and environmental planning, zoning and permitting services, development review, and enforcement of building, zoning, development and environmental codes.
See the Permits Directory to find information on all the permits (building, trade, sign, fence, etc.) issued by Community Development.
