Planning and Zoning

The Montezuma Planning and Zoning Commission is made up of citizens appointed by the Mayor and City Council.  The members of the P&Z Commission are:

    Carl Adams, Chairman (478) 472-7571 Board Members: Charles Glover, Mary Helen Jackson, Ed Turley, Byron Thompson, Hazel Thompson

The P&Z Commission meets eight (8) days before City Council meetings at 5:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.  All meetings are open to the public.  P&Z does not meet if there are no agenda items for discussion.  Please contact City Hall to be placed on the agenda.

See our Documents, Maps, and Forms section for meeting minutes and other related information.


The City of Montezuma is covered by a comprehensive sign ordinance.  Most signs require a sign permit.  Check our Documents, Maps, and Forms section for current regulations and Sign Permit Application forms.

Zoning Districts and Rezoning

The City of Montezuma is divided into several zoning districts.  You may click on the district below to see a list of the allowed land uses in that district.

Each of these districts are clearly defined on the Zoning District Map in this section. Please note that the official Zoning District Map hangs in the Council Chamber at City Hall.  

See the Documents and Forms section for the complete Zoning Ordinance as well as forms for zoning change requests.  The Zoning District Map can also be found here. 

Citizens wishing to use property in a manner that is not consistent with the allowed uses may apply to the Clerk / Administrator for a re-zoning or a Certificate of Nonconforming Use.   Effective October 1, 1998 there is a $60 fee for all applications. 

Requests will be reviewed by the P&Z Commission at their next regular meeting.   The Commission will vote on the request and make a recommendation to the Mayor and City Council based on that vote.

All requests require a public hearing.  Generally these hearings are held immediately prior to the next regularly scheduled City Council Meeting.  The Mayor and Council will usually vote on the request at the regular City Council meeting immediately following the public hearing.  State law requires that public hearings be advertised in the legal organ at least two week prior to the meeting.
