All contractors and residents within the jurisdiction of Crofton are reminded that they need to make themselves aware of these comprehensive rules and abide by them when planning any new construction or remodeling/yard projects.
Zoning Permits for the City of Crofton
The Planning and Zoning Commission would like to remind residents that now is a great time to submit zoning permit applications for 2019 construction.
Zoning permits are required for new and replacement buildings and structures, concrete, decks, additions, fences, gazebos, driveways, patios, sidewalks, and other man-made structures obstructing the area between the earth and the sky on a property, lot, or parcel within the city limits. The city also has limited authority for uses of property within a one mile distance from the city boundary.
Zoning permits are an intricate part of a city’s growth for citizen’s safety, maintaining a uniform architecture within the city, and assuring property values are not compromised.
A zoning permit application is available from the city clerk or online at www.city.crofton-nebraska.com . The application must be completed and submitted to the city clerk.
It’s important the application be completed with as much detail as possible to ensure expeditious approval. A good website for lot identification and other information is www.knox.assessor.gisworkshop.com, click on the “Planning/Zoning” link at the top.
If a resident intends to submit a zoning permit application, it should be submitted well in advance to starting construction. The approval process can take a few weeks in order for the Zoning Administrator to review the application and to get approval from utility companies and city staff. For questions regarding zoning permit requirements or help in properly completing a zoning permit application, contact the city clerk, and the Zoning Administrator volunteer will contact the applicant with assistance.
The City of Crofton is currently zoned into several districts ranging for commercial/industrial to low density residential, with each zone having defined conditions on the use within the district. The districts are defined around the current use within those districts and possible future uses within each district. The city districts can be rezoned as needed to support the districts development and as needed as the districts build and evolve. If rezoning of a particular district is beneficial to the community, a public hearing is held and the citizens have equal empowerment to submit and voice concerns and questions. The citizens also have the empowerment to petition changes to the city ordinances and the city zoning ordinances including the zoning districts
