Planning & Development Services

Overview

Responsibilities
Planning and Zoning is a division of the Development Services Department. It determines the use of land in the corporate limits of the City of Claremore.

All zoning should be confirmed through the Development Service Department before it is developed or purchased. If the current zoning is not appropriate for the proposed use, the property will require rezoning. All zoning cases are reviewed in an open public hearing and all property owners within a 300 feet radius of the subject property are notified. A notice is also placed in the Claremore Progress and posted at the proposed site for the rezoning.

Denial of Service
If denied, the applicant may apply to the City Council within 14 days of the denial to be heard by the Claremore City Council. If approved, the request is automatically forwarded to the City Council for consideration
