The Calcasieu Parish Planning and Zoning Board meets once a month (the Tuesday before the third Thursday) to discuss requests for rezoning, zoning exceptions, zoning variances, flood variances, subdivision approval, and road abandonments. At a minimum, the following must be submitted to the Division of Planning and Development:
Completed application form
Deed with legal description
Filing fee (typically $200.00, but varies)
Other supporting documents
Deadline for application is six weeks prior to the desired meeting date. The Planning staff will post a sign on the property in question, take a video, and run a legal notice in the official journal of the Parish. Requests for rezoning and road abandonments also appear before the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury for final action.
