Coronavirus Pandemic Update:

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the City of Worthington is establishing changes to the delivery of service to the public to promote the health and safety of our community and our staff while maintaining necessary services for our residents and businesses.  The Division of Planning is adopting a partial shutdown of the administration of the Worthington Planning & Zoning Code. These interim procedures are expected to be in place approximately 30-days (or longer) beginning March 17, 2020, and are subject to change.

No in person applications will be accepted. We are available by phone and email to consult and answer questions related to your project. If Board and Commission approval is needed, we are unable to have public meetings at this time. Please call 614-431-2424 to discuss the specifics of your project.

Working in conjunction with these boards, the Division of Building Regulation and the City’s administration, the planning coordinator provides a cohesive view of current and long-range land use planning.
