Planning & Zoning

The Planning & Zoning Division reviews all development plans, subdivision plats, building plans, and business licenses 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. Planning and Zoning also ensures continued compliance with the zoning code through the code enforcement process. We respond to public inquiries regarding various property issues and assist the public and developers with process information.


The mission of the Planning and Building Department is to ensure the safety of the public through building and fire code education, professional assistance, and enforcement; plan for Sahuarita's future physical, environmental, economic, and cultural needs; and manage development in the community.
