The Carlisle Planning and Zoning Department is responsible for comprehensive planning, zoning code updates, and zoning and land development approvals. Cities choose to enforce zoning and building codes in order to provide minimum requirements to safeguard life, health, and public welfare. Codes also control the design, construction, installation of equipment, quality of materials, repair, use and occupancy of residential dwellings and accessory structures.
The Zoning Department is responsible for reviewing all zoning and building requests to ensure that it complies with local code requirements. Depending upon the submitted permit, the staff may be required to also review the plan for code compliance.
Homeowner Association Regulations
Some properties in the City have additional restrictions/regulations within the development. These restrictions/regulations are not enforced by the City; rather they are enforced by the homeowners within the development.
