Planning and Zoning oversees land use within the Williston City Limits and one mile extraterritorial area. This includes administering the comprehensive plan, zoning ordinance, subdivision ordinance, and the Renaissance Zone.

Comprehensive Plan
The comprehensive plan is a policy guide based on community values to preserve those values and guide growth and change. The City of Williston Comprehensive Plan and associated documents can be found here.

Renaissance Zone
The Renaissance Zone is intended to encourage private investment to develop, renovate, rehabilitate and revitalize the downtown area. The objective of the Renaissance Zone program is to offer financial incentives that will encourage capital investments within the Zone needed to produce the desired economic, commercial, residential and entertainment outcomes. Information on the Renaissance Zone can be found here.
