Building & Zoning

It is our overall mission to improve the safety, quality of life and environment for the present and future generations.  

 It is our goal:

  • To promote the health, safety, and general welfare of our community
  • To lesson congestion in streets
  • To secure safety from fire and other dangers
  • To provide adequate light and air
  • To promote the distribution of population, land classification, and land development
  • To support provisions for adequate transportation, water flow, water supply, drainage, and                sanitation
  • To protect property against blight and depreciation

We will accomplish our goal by assisting our residents and customers in a friendly and comprehensive way of understanding and complying with the ordinances adopted by the Gretna City Council.
