Zoning Information

Development Regulation Changes



Morgan County has zoning and land use regulations in place for the purposes of conserving and protecting the health, aesthetics, morals, convenience, order, prosperity and general welfare of the County and its citizens.

Zoning and land use ordinances have been passed by the Board of Commissioners to provide adequate light and air; to protect natural resources; to prevent the overcrowding of land; to promote desirable living conditions and stability of neighborhoods; to facilitate the adequate provision of transportation, water, sewerage, schools, parks, and other public requirements throughout the County.

If your property is located inside a flood plain, you are not allowed to build any structures on the property until you have obtained a Letter of Map Amendment from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. A Letter of Map Amendment is also required to remove any existing structures from a flood plain. To find out if your property is located inside a flood plain, please visit the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. For more information, please Email Chuck Jarrell or call (706) 342-4373.

All subdivision and major development projects must comply with the Zoning and Land Use regulations and the Development regulations of Morgan County.
