Welcome to the Planning and Development Department of the Town of Greeneville! On our website you will find information regarding planning, zoning, development services, and long-range planning. We work closely with both the Building Department and Public Works Department, particularly in regard to stormwater management.

Our mission is to effectively combine sound professional planning principles, public involvement, and applicable standards in order to efficiently balance a spectrum of needs and interests while addressing the dynamics of growth in achieving integral development in Greeneville!

The Planning and Development Department:
  • Creates long-range plans for the physical growth of the Town;
  • Fosters the implementation of long-range plans;
  • Encourages public and private development projects;
  • Ensures that development projects conform to the regulations and standards set for safety, health, order, convenience, beauty and general welfare of the Town; and
  • Promotes the participation of the public in the planning and development of the Town.
