Planning Department

The City of Jasper Planning and Zoning Department works to create land use plans and programs that assure new development, population growth, and the revitalization of existing facilities in Jasper that are in line with the city's 20-year comprehensive plan. A secondary focus of the department is to work with prospective developers, and organizations such as the Jasper Industrial Development Board, Jasper Main Street, the Chamber of Commerce of Walker County, among others, to drive and support economic growth.
