Department of Planning and Zoning

The planning and zoning process helps build a stronger and more vital community. Our office handles all permits related to subdivision, building, and development, including Development Review Board appeals of administrative decisions and review of conditional use applications. Applications need adequate time for review and are subject to the scheduled found on the sidebar to the right. Planning and Zoning in Jericho strives to implement the goals of the Jericho Comprehensive Town Plan. For information about current projects, see the Projects and Studies link on the upper left.
