Zoning Ordinance Procedures Manual

The City of Jackson Zoning Ordinance Procedure Manual provides a comprehensive, systematic guide through the procedures of each type of Planning/Zoning Application outlined in the zoning ordinance.

A description of each type of Planning/Zoning Application, as well as, submittal requirements (checklist), fee schedule, and procedural flow charts are included as a guide for applicants wishing to submit a Planning/Zoning Application for review.

Applicants should review this manual thoroughly (along with relevant documents) to assist in plan preparation, reduce the amount of time spent on plan revisions, and to understand the submittal requirements and appeal processes.
