Planning & Zoning Division
The Planning and Zoning Division reviews all building plans, business licenses, development plans and subdivision plats for zoning compliance. We prepare and revise the General Plan and the Zoning Code and review proposals for such amendments as well as rezonings, conditional uses and variances.

Sahuarita East Conceptual Area Plan (SECAP)
Overview: The Sahuarita East Conceptual Area Plan (SECAP) is a long-range planning and visioning process looking at approximately 40 square miles of land east of the current Town boundaries. The plan will include conceptual land use maps as well as policies to help achieve the vision. SECAP is a subset of the General Plan but will also have its own area plan.  The plan will become a component of Aspire 2035: Sahuarita's General Plan when the updated General Plan is adopted in 2015.
