Monroe County Planning and Zoning was formed to promote orderly distribution of land development while preserving the natural resources and beauty of unincorporated Monroe County. Monroe County Planning and Zoning is responsible for the following: Official Zoning District Maps, Zoning Compliance Certificates, Subdivision Review, Physical Addresses, Flood Plain Maps, Conditional Use and Variance and Rezoning Request.

Occupational Tax Permits/Business Licenses:

Monroe County does not currently require businesses to hold a Local County Business License. We do offer our citizens and business owners the option of purchasing an Occupational Tax Permit. The Occupational Tax Permit costs $50.00, expires on December 31 of each year, and may be obtained by appearing in person to the Monroe County Board of Commissioners Office located at 38 West Main Street Forsyth, GA 31029.

How to get a physical address:  Stop by the office or just give us a call and we can give you the proper address for your home.
