| Code | Information | Forms and Applications | Maps | Meetings | Mission Statement |

The Lincoln County Planning Department was created in 2006 to prepare the County for future large development projects. While the County has had an active planning commission for over 30 years, the pace of change and the size of projects have been slow. Over the next 40 years there is the potential for 250,000 new residents to a County of only 4400 people. As the 13th largest County in the country (at over 6 million acres), Lincoln County is facing unprecedented growth.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Planning Department is to provide friendly, fair, and factual land use information in an informal environment. We strive to assist the public and provide direction for the Town Boards, the Planning Commission and the Board of Commissioners.
