Planning Functions: The Town of Tyrone Comprehensive Plan is the central document used as a guide for the overall development of the town, providing goals and policy objectives for housing, economic development, natural and historic resources, community facilities, utilities, transportation, land use, and the Capital Improvement Element, and Short Term Work Program for the imposition of impact fees. In addition, the Department maintains a database of development and demographic statistics and produces plans, studies and procedures that guide the development of the county, addressing issues of public facilities and services, environmental quality, and ensuring a safe, healthy environment.
Zoning Functions: The Zoning Ordinance contains information on the various zoning districts allowed in the town. Each district lists the permitted and condition uses that are allowed and the minimum dimensional requirements such as lot size and width and setbacks among other requirements. Applications for rezoning, variances, preliminary plats, final plats, site plans, and text amendments are submitted to Town Hall. These applications are distributed to various other town and county departments for comments and scheduled for public hearings if applicable. The town also administers a Sign Ordinance. The Sign Ordinance lists the permitted and conditions for signs within the town limits.
