Cascade County has several different types of zoning throughout the county. Depending on where a parcel of land is located in the county, land use regulations will differ.
Development Plan & Zoning Regulations
In the late 1970s, the Cascade County Development Plan was adopted by the Cascade County Commissioners. The development plan labeled all land within Cascade County, that was not part of an incorporated City or Town, City-County Jurisdictional Area, or other created Zoning District, as residential/agricultural zoned land. In 2007, Cascade County adopted Zoning Regulations. With updates throughout these past years, our permitting systems have reflected these changes.
Contact the Cascade County Planning Department for the application and permitting process details and for any other information regarding change of use on parcels within the county. Please review the Zoning Regulations for descriptions of the different zoning districts within Cascade County. Regulations governing these areas within Cascade County, as well as a map of the various districts, are available on this website as well as in our office. Please contact the Cascade County Planning Department with any questions you have for these areas.a
