Planning

 
The Planning Department is responsible for both the current and long-range planning functions of the City of Gastonia. In addition to providing assistance with land use information, zoning permits, occupancy permits, setbacks, sign permits, variances, complaints, and flood plain administration, the department's responsibilities also encompass comprehensive and small area planning and design, rezoning and other public hearing processes, as well as coordination of local historic districts and other design and development review processes. Further, the Planning Department serves as a significant resource to other City departments and divisions in the realm of concept visualization and GIS mapping & analysis.
