The Department of Planning and Community Development is responsible for zoning and development ordinances.
In 2018, after 18 months of gathering community input, the City of Corinth adopted the Envision Corinth 2040 plan. The plan establishes a broad and inspiring vision of Corinth's future and serves as a guide for development decisions. The City also adopted a new land development code in 2022 which will further our mission to ensure long term growth, improvements, and beautification.
The code enforcement officer is responsible for the maintenance of properties, control of plant growth and debris, animal restrictions, and land use. They are also responsible for the sign ordinance and street lighting. Questions and concerns in these areas should be directed to the code enforcement officer.
