The Planning and Zoning Advisory Committee was established in 2015 by act of the Alabama State Legislature.  Its purpose shall be to make recommendations to the Baldwin County Planning and Zoning Board of Adjustments concerning any proposed changes to zoning ordinances or regulations or the master plan, or variances thereto, related to the Fort Morgan Zoning District 25.

                          Advisory Committee Members (2019-2023)

Ernie Church (Chair) - Bonnie Lowry,- Thelma Strong - Randy Ulrich - Chan West

The Fort Morgan Planning and Zoning Advisory Committee will post here all re-zoning and variance request notices received from the county planning and zoning department.   In most cases, these notices are received about 10 days before the county planning and zoning commission meeting. Notice of the request is also posted on the property involved and the county mails specific advisories to adjacent landowners.


                                              HOW YOU SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN THE PLANNING AND ZONING PROCESS

When a request for re-zoning or variance is received from the Baldwin County Planning and Zoning Department  the application packet is posted here, and will be considered by our advisory committee at a meeting on the following third Wednesday of the month at 9:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall of Shell Bank Baptist Church.  As sign space is available, a notice will also be posted on the VFD sign at  Fire Station #1 as “P & Z” with the date.  A sign will also be posted on the property with the number of the request. Anyone may come to our advisory committee meeting, but only committee members vote on a recommendation.  A record of that vote is sent to the county for consideration by the Planning and Zoning Commission. The public notice includes information about the meeting of the County Planning and Zoning Commission.  


If members are interested in a particular case, they can review the application package that is posted below by clicking on the link.

Those with strong feelings for or against a particular zoning case should attend the county meeting and, before the meeting opens, register to speak.

The request then goes before the Baldwin County Commission, where there is another opportunity for the public to voice its opinion.


In our effort to control development, we need people who are willing to go to these meetings and before the meeting starts register to speak.  This means that you may have to be in Bay Minette before 8:00 AM.  Schedule of County Commission meetings can be found on the county website www.baldwincountyal.gov.  

CASE TA-19001.  The Baldwin County Commission approved UNANIMOUSLY the proposed amendments to Article 2 of the Baldwin County Zoning Ordinances for District 25.
