Planning Division administers and maintains the county's locally adopted comprehensive land use plan and land use code (Lincoln County Code, Chapter 1). Basic functions include reviewing various types of land use and development applications ("current planning"), and the update and revision of the comprehensive plan and land use code ("long range planning").
Building Division administers the county’s building permit and inspection program. This function involves the review of construction plans, the issuance of permits and the field inspection of work in progress for compliance with state construction specialty codes, including structural, mechanical, plumbing and electrical. This program operates through a local "delegation of authority" from the state Building Codes Division.
On-Site Waste Management Division administers the Department of Environmental Quality regulations governing the siting, installation and repair of on-site sewage disposal systems. The county administers this program as a contract agent of the Department of Environmental Quality through an intergovernmental agreement.
