Zoning Ordinances

Our zoning ordinances are designed to regulate the use of land, buildings, and structures within the corporate city limits of Parkersburg.

If you would like view our zoning ordinances, you can find them below.

If you are unsure of what zoning regulations apply to you, please look at our zoning map.

The purpose of zoning is to promote the general welfare of the community, to protect and conserve the value of buildings, and encourage the most appropriate use of the land. Building permits are issued for changes to your home or business that will impact the footprint of the building such as building additions, sidewalks, decks, fences, ect. Things that do not need a building permit include items of routine maintenance such as re-roofing, siding, finish work, basement sealing, window replacement, and plumbing, electrical, or HVAC repairs. If you are unsure if you need a building permit, please call City Hall at 319-346-2262.
