Community Development Department Functions:

Planning and Zoning - A key role of the department is maintaining the Spalding County Comprehensive Plan, an inventory used for planning over an extended period. Additionally, the department staffs the Spalding County Planning Commission and the County's Board of Appeals for zoning related matters.

The department also maintains the County's Official Zoning Map, making changes as approved by the Board of Commissioners. The department also handles applications to rezone property as well as certificates of zoning compliance.

Building Inspections - A traditional role of the department has been to handle Spalding County's building inspections program. A Building Official and a Building Inspector manage these inspections. Spalding County requires inspections for: footings (or a dual-inspection for rough plumbing and slab construction); framing, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC; and a final inspection.

Geographic Information Systems - The Spalding County GIS program supports community development efforts through site analysis and other spatial mapping, in addition to providing occasional support for other growth management initiatives.
