Land & Resource Management

Welcome to the Land & Resource Management webpage!

In addition to planning for long term, future development of Pope County as guided by the County's goals and objectives stated in the Pope County Comprehensive Land Use Plan, our department administers and assists the Planning Advisory Commission with enforcement of existing land use controls.

These controls include ordinances regarding feedlots, septic systems, shorelands, solid waste, subdivisions, and wetlands, as well as related state and federal regulations and rules.

Our goal is to provide guidance to landowners, minimize land use conflicts, manage new and existing land development and protect Pope County's water, air and soil resources.
