Planning & Zoning

The Planning and Zoning Department is responsible for regulating development within the Town of Harrisburg. Planning staff performs site plan reviews, architectural plan reviews, handles rezoning cases, processes subdivisions, and handles any questions regarding the development of land in Harrisburg. Zoning staff issues zoning compliance permits, performs regular inspections to ensure compliance with the Unified Development Ordinance, as well as investigates citizen complaints regarding possible zoning ordinance violations. 

The Planning and Zoning Department issues Zoning Compliance Permits, which are required for any development or construction project. The Cabarrus County Building Standards department will not issue a Building Permit until a Zoning Compliance Permit has been obtained from the Town of Harrisburg Planning and Zoning Department. Applications for Zoning Compliance Permits may be found by clicking here, and must be submitted to the Planning and Zoning Department either in person or by fax for processing.

Development in the Town of Harrisburg is guided by the 2010 Town of Harrisburg Land Use Plan, created in partnership with the Cabarrus County Planning & Development Department.
