Planning + Development

A world-class community consists of great people and great places. Hamilton County's Planning + Development Department is responsible for ensuring safe, responsible development and redevelopment while building partnerships to create and implement visionary plans.

Whether reviewing construction plans for a new hospital, writing new zoning regulations for parking standards, funding community and economic development projects, or mapping our stormwater system, the staff of Planning + Development works to make Hamilton County a great place to live, work and play.
