Zoning

The Zoning Director is responsible for administering the Levy County Zoning Ordinance and related land use regulations, such as the Flood Ordinance. The Zoning staff responds to the general public, land development professionals and realtors inquiring about permitted land uses and development standards. The Zoning Department enforces the ordinance through the review of building permits, site plans, and subdivision proposals. Also, the Director manages the processing of all applications for re-zoning, variances, special exceptions, vested rights and appeals in accordance with State and local laws. Consistency with the Levy County Comprehensive Plan is maintained by updating the Zoning Ordinance and related regulations on a periodic basis.

Certain applications for zoning petitions and permits can be printed by downloading from the Zoning Forms below.
