Zoning Application

Below are the various applications the Monongalia County Planning Office has provided in Portable Document Format (PDF). Our regular office hours are from 8am - 4pm, Monday through Friday.  Any submissions outside that time must be arranged in advance. Submissions are due by 12 noon on the submission date for zoning applications!

In order to apply for one of these applications the person applying (or their appointed representative) must:

  1. Follow all the required information listed on said document. The first page(s) of each application is basic information required for permit approval. Thereafter follows any additional information required by the ordinance in order to approval the permit. Anything listed out separately must be included in the application unless otherwise verified ahead of time by Planning Staff.
  2. Allow for an acceptance check upon receipt of the application. This is to verify that all the required items have been submitted. This does not guarantee approval, just that the application meets the standards set forth in the ordinance. Please note that there may be further scrutiny and detailed review in the ensuing week to ensure the application fully complies with the standards of the ordinance.
  3. Understand that after submission, only minor clarifications on existing submittals or new information related to clarifications may be submitted. 
  4. Go to any and all meetings which may be required and be available to answer questions.
  5. Allow for onsite visits by Planning Staff as required to ensure compliance with the ordinance.
