Planning & Zoning
The Town works to administer Town Planning and Development through the adoption of a comprehensive plan, zoning ordinance, and land development regulations which provide for harmonious, orderly and progressive growth, informed decisions on land-use decisions, and help prepare for future development and maintain and enhance the current quality of life that makes Irmo such a distinct and desirable community in which to live. We pride ourselves on partnering with the people and businesses who invest in our community.
The ultimate goal of the Comprehensive Plan is to establish a set of guidelines and procedures that will serve as a tool for making informed decisions about land development, economic growth, infrastructure improvements, housing and transportation needs, and protecting natural and cultural resources. State Law requires that the plan be re-evaluated every five years to reflect changes in growth or direction of development and the Irmo Planning Commission must prepare and recommend a new plan every 10 years.
The Zoning Department ensures compliance with the Town of Irmo Zoning Ordinance. The Zoning Clerk reviews zoning request and schedules public hearings and permit signs, reviews plans to ensure compliance with zoning land use regulations and enforces all provisions in the Zoning Ordinance.
