Planning & Zoning
The planning department is given the task of administrating the zoning and subdivision ordinances for the Town. Zoning permits, sign permits, subdivisions, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping, site plans, and text amendments are some of the everyday items that the department is charged with handling.
Requests to Planning Board
If your request or project needs to go before the planning board for a recommendation to the Town Council our department will help guide you through the process to make sure you and the town get everything done as quickly and fairly as possible.

Surf City requires that all construction, renovations, signs, and development be done under a valid permit issued by the Town. Please call us to find out if your project requires a permit prior to work being started. Lot clearing is not allowed without a zoning permit
GIS & Mapping
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a computer-based mapping system used for the creation, storage, and maintenance of geographic (spatial) digital data. The data is organized in layers and can be used for analysis and mapping for Town projects. Each layer has information (called attributes) in a database that relates to each data set. Examples of GIS data layers include base mapping (roads, buildings, water bodies, etc), utilities (water lines, sewer system, street lights), and Assessors' tax parcels.
