Need a zoning permit?
Sawmills contracts with the Western Piedmont Council of Government (WPCOG) for planning services.
The Planner is in Sawmills on Tuesdays from 1:00pm to 5:00pm and Fridays from 1:00pm to 5:00pm
If you call or email anytime, the Planner might be able to write a permit and leave it waiting for you to pick up if it is a simple project. Some residential projects should be discussed in person; commercial projects most of the time require site plans that take more than a day to review.
