A preliminary conference with the planning staff of the Department of Planning and Zoning is required before making application for rezoning or conditional use permits. Call (540) 658-8668 for an appointment.
The location of the property to be discussed, identified by tax map and parcel numbers, is useful information you may want to supply when making an appointment for a conference.
The planner you meet with will inform you of the application procedures and deadlines, as well as tentative hearing dates. The first public hearing usually takes place within three months of the application submission deadline. The rezoning process generally takes four to six months to complete.
Please see online forms for updated fees and information on rezoning and conditional use permits.
