County Zoning Certificates
Albany County is currently looking at changing our “zoning certificate” process and I was wondering if you would entertain a quick question about your permit process. Currently, Albany County requires that a zoning certificate for all buildings be approved and signed by the Board of County Commissioners. Albany County has not adopted building codes so we require only the zoning certificate.
My question is whether your County requires Board approval for all zoning certificates/building permits (specifically for allowed uses)or has the Board delegated authority to your department to approve these permits?

Raising Application Fees
Our community (Glenrock) is looking at raising our application fees for Conditional Use Permits, BOA applications, plats, etc. We would like to get an general idea of what other communities are doing. Right now, our fees don’t even cover the publishing fees.
Let`s help out our fellow planners! Do you have your fee schedule you can send to Glenrock? Advice? How did your community raise your fees? You email them at email@example.com
