All Aiken County Government Offices will be closed January 21 for the Martin Luther King Holiday.


Applications to amend the text or map of the Aiken County Zoning and Development District Atlas are submitted to the Planning & Development Department.  These applications are first considered by the Aiken County Planning Commission, which after holding a public hearing on the application makes a recommendation for approval or disapproval to Aiken County Council.  County Council approves or disapproves the request.  Since approval of a text or map change is an ordinance change, the entire process can take four months.

Applications are available from the Planning & Development Department.  A completed application form and fee must be submitted to Planning & Development at least 30 days prior to a scheduled Planning Commission meeting.  The Aiken County Planning Commission meets on the third Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM.  Additional information about the application process and submission deadlines can be obtained from the Planning Division, at 803.642.1520.
