Zoning Permits Required for Storm Damage

The Ogle County Planning & Zoning Department is reminding residents of
unincorporated Ogle County that a Zoning Certificate (permit) is required for
the reconstruction of buildings substantially damaged or destroyed by the
recent tornado of April 9, 2015. The staff of the Planning & Zoning Department is
available to assist in completing the required application process, application
fees will be waived, and issuance of Zoning Certificates will be expedited.

If a portion or all of a building was
destroyed, a Zoning Certificate is required prior to reconstruction. For
repairs such as replacement of windows, siding, shingles, or other similar
repairs, no Zoning Certificate is required.

For questions regarding whether or not a Zoning Certificate is required, please
contact the Ogle County Planning & Zoning Department at (815) 732-1190 or .
