ABOUT THIS OFFICE

Cass County was one of the first counties to adopt zoning in 1969. It is the goal of Zoning to encourage growth in an orderly fashion while at the same time preserving and encouraging commercial and industrial growth.

The Cass County Zoning Department serves the rural Cass County area and we provide building permits and inspection services through interlocal agreements for the Villages of Avoca, Alvo, Cedar Creek, Elmwood, Greenwood, Manley, Murray, Nehawka, South Bend, Union and Weeping Water.
