Area Plan

Area Plan Office

 

The Plan Commission Office has five (5) main functions.

 

  1. Organize, maintain, and prepare the records of the Boone County Area Plan Commission, Boone County Plat Committee, and Boone County Board of Zoning Appeals.  The records include petition forms, plats, meeting minutes, and other documents used by the boards.
  2. Prepare and maintain the budget approved by the Boone County Area Plan Commission and Boone County Council for each year.
  3. Accept and review petition filings for the Boone County Area Plan Commission, Boone County Plat Committee, and Boone County Board of Zoning Appeals.  We work to assist the boards and the petitioners with the workings of the requirements of the Boone County Zoning Ordinance and Boone County Subdivision Control Ordinance.
  4. Issue improvement location permits for new construction as directed by the Boone County Zoning Ordinance and Boone County Subdivision Control Ordinance.
  5. Enforce the regulations set forth by the Boone County Zoning Ordinance and Boone County Subdivision Control Ordinance.  Any petition or permit granted through the Boone County Area Plan Commission Office is subject to at least one site inspection before it will be approved.

 

The Boone County Area Plan Commission is also responsible for administering the floodplain ordinance adopted from the State of Indiana. The official maps are in the office and designate all lands with either 100 or 500-year flood or no special flood hazard area.

 

Planning and zoning is offered as a service to the community to help preserve property values and to locate compatible land uses in the same vicinity. Also, the distribution of zoning districts is typically based on densities. Where there are non-compatible land uses that abut each other, we try to screen or buffer the two conflicting uses.
