The Building and Zoning Division is responsible for ensuring compliance with local, state and international building, housing and zoning codes, which keep the community safe and attractive.
The division reviews building plans and issues permits for all construction within the City of Grove City. Building inspectors and code enforcement officers inspect both new and existing buildings to ensure that they are constructed to plan and maintained properly.
The Building and Zoning Division regulates land use through its zoning functions, working closely with the Planning Commission and the Board of Zoning Appeals. The division also oversees development within the City’s floodplains, ensuring that federal regulations are met. These regulations have been established to ensure that new construction or other changes in the land surrounding waterways will not increase flood risks anywhere in Grove City or neighboring communities.
Signage throughout the City also is regulated by the division, which issues sign permits and ensures compliance with the City’s sign code.
