Zoning Applications

Applications for zone changes, special reviews and variances are obtained from the Planning Office. Submittal deadlines are the first Monday of each month. Each application is reviewed by staff and the property is posted prior to the public hearing before the appropriate board or commission. Legal advertisements for the public hearings are placed in the Yellowstone County News Times at least 15 days in advance of the date of the public hearing.

All applications need to be submitted via the Citizen Access Portal. To better serve you, we are excited to roll out electronic submittal of all permits and projects. Citizen Access Online allows vendors with a current business license the convenience of viewing and applying for Zoning Applications and paying fees with a credit card online.
To create an account to access City services and utilize the electronic permit and application submittal tools currently available within the Planning Division,  access the Citizen Access Portal at:  Citizen Access Online
