Welcome to the

Apply OnlineApply Online for Zoning Permits, Building Permits, Board Petitions, & Code Complaints

We are happy to premiere our new link to Online Permitting.  You are now able to apply and track the progress of any Zoning (Location Improvement Permit) and Building Permit.  You are also able to apply for the following board applications:  Technical Review Committee, Development Standard Variances, Special Exceptions, Zone Map Amendments, and Subdivision Primary/Secondary Plats.  Online Code Complaints may also be sent to the office through this portal.

If you apply for a board application or permit online, feel free to share any comments or concerns with the staff through the APC email FCAPC@co.fulton.in.us or by phone (574) 223-7667.  Our goal is to make this an easy-to-use application that is helpful to both the staff and the public. 



  • All virtual meetings are open to the public and will be conducted as required by each Board's specific Rules of Procedure.  The public will have the ability to comment and ask questions during each meeting as required by the Rules of Procedure. 
  • Each meeting "room" will open 15 minutes prior to the official meeting being called to order.  This will give all attendees ample time to navigate the call-in feature or weblink.  Attendees may use the web link on a computer or tablet or by downloading the app on a mobile device.  They may also dial the telephonic number and type in the access to code to listen to the meeting without using a computer or mobile device. 
  • The meeting agenda and presentation material will be linked under each announced meeting for the public to print prior to the meeting and have at their disposal to follow along during the meeting. 
  • Please contact the Fulton County Plan Commission with any questions prior to the meeting during business hours.




    • Due to the COVID-19 concerns and as an abundance of caution, we ask everyone to please respect the social distancing guidelines and keep our staff safe while on-site conducting inspections.  Please have as few individuals as possible on-site during inspections.  If at any time our staff is uncomfortable with the number of individuals on-site, they will leave the property and you will have to reschedule the inspection on a different date.  Please feel free to call us with any questions or concerns you may have.  Please stay safe and utilize the county resources listed on the Fulton County Homepage for more information on the COVID-19 pandemic.

    • Please take a moment to fill out your Census 2020 survey - your family's information will help shape our county/city/town's growth for the next ten years.  Below, please find some useful links to the Census website and assistance phone numbers.
