Fulton County, Indiana

Fulton County is focused on creating a prosperous future while preserving our history.

Area Plan Commission

Welcome to the Fulton County Area Plan Commission (F.C.P.C.) Department.

The Fulton County Area Plan was effective January 2008 and successfully created a coalition of both the unincorporated and all of the incorporated areas within Fulton County. The Area Plan created one set of ordinances that are effective throughout the County, eliminating the confusion for residential and commercial development that may be located in one or more of the incorporated and/or unincorporated areas of Fulton County.

The F.C.P.C. administers and enforces the zoning, floodplain, building, unsafe building, sidewalk, electrical and plumbing registration licenses, and ADA codes through adopted ordinances and/or inter-local agreements with each legislative body in Fulton County. All minutes and petition documentation for the Area Boards, or the Advisory Boards (prior to 2008), are available upon request in the Plan Commission Office. Currently, there is one 13 Member Plan Commission Board representing the goals and directives of the residents and property owners of Fulton County through the Fulton County Comprehensive Plan and four Board of Zoning Appeal (BZA) divisions representing each of their own individual jurisdictions.
