Welcome to the Planning Program, part of the Planning & Building Division
The Planning and Building Division guides the creation of livable and sustainable communities in unincorporated Washoe County. The Division prepares and implements the County's Master Plan, to include distinct plans for the varied communities within the County. The Master Plan is implemented through regulatory zoning, the review of development applications, instituting and enforcing land use, business licensing, and nuisance codes. The Division is also responsible for providing key support to the Regional Emergency Operations Center (REOC) and offers Pre-development Meetings.
