Planning & Building


Ensure the safety of the public through building and  fire code education, professional assistance, and enforcement; and plan for Sahuarita’s future physical, environmental, economic, and cultural needs, and manage development in the community.

The Planning and Zoning and Building Safety Departments have been combined in order to better serve the community and reduce Town expenditures. Planning staff administers and enforces the Sahuarita Zoning Code, General Plan and Specific Plans as well as providing oversight in implementation of the Town of Sahuarita.

The Planning and Building Department, in conjunction with the Public Works Department, has worked to define performance timeframe (PDF) goals for development review activities. This is separate from the regulatory time frame maximums published in accordance with state law.
