Union County Office of Planning and Economic Development

Union County Planning is responsible for traditional planning initiatives such as transportation planning, administering the first-time homebuyer program, economic development, trail authority support, subdivision and land development plan review and approval. The planning office reports to the Planning Commission Board. 


Our mission is to foster quality planning that promotes orderly growth and development by balancing competing community needs such as economic expansion to retain viability with the protection of the built and natural environment.

Planning in Union County is guided by Cultivating Community: A Plan for Union County's Future, the County’s comprehensive plan.
