Zoning & Planning
The Zoning and Planning Department analyzes and enforces land use-related issues in the city, including accepting citizen requests, providing land use data, and processing applications. The Department is the advisory and enforcement component of the city’s adopted Comprehensive Plan.
The zoning ordinance and all adopted supplements support the goal of maintaining standards appropriate to advancing architectural, environmental and general quality of life development within the City of Kennesaw.
The Department also provides staff assistance to the Planning Commission and Historic Preservation Commission. Visit the Boards and Commissions page for details.
On November 13, 2012, the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute facilitated an Active Living Workshop in Kennesaw, Georgia, observing the walkability, livability and aging-in-place elements along Cherokee Street.
