Please be advised that a maximum of two people (total) will be allowed in our service lobby at any one time and face masks are required for entry and for service. 


To the maximum extent possible please limit visits to the office for the purpose of application submittal.  We will gladly handle your general property questions at the counter as well; however, depending on the volume of traffic to the office we may be forced to cut those conversations short and finish them via email or the phone in order to continue to serve other customers with specific application matters.

If you are unable or uncomfortable coming into our office at this time, please feel free to continue to mail (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc) your applications in to our office instead. All land use application fees must accompany the submittal. Likewise all of your general property questions can be handled via email and the phone which may eliminate your need to make a trip to our office.

Grant County is providing access to scheduled Planning Commission meetings and Hearing Examiner hearings for the public via WebEx audio connection. For those attending in person, face masks are required. The hearing room does have a maximum occupancy capacity of 18 (total) people. An overflow room will be provided when necessary.
