Documents & Links
The Planning and Zoning Department administers several laws that affect landowners in Oneida County. These laws are designed to promote public health, safety and welfare, and provide for orderly land use development and future growth in Oneida County. Zoning regulations apply in the unincorporated areas of all 20 townships, except those lands in the Towns of Enterprise, Monico, and Sugar Camp which are greater than 1,000 feet from a lake or 300 feet from a river or stream.
Zoning permits are required for most structures, including seasonal and permanent dwellings, garages, storage buildings, decks, and grading or filling within 200 feet of the shoreland. A new business use of property, an expansion or change of the business use of the property also requires approval from this Department. Permits are also required for placements of signs.
