The Planning Department has changed from a four-week review cycle to a six-week review cycle for PC/BZA submittals. Please check the meeting schedules for all deadlines.

The Gallatin Planning Department administers and prepares long range planning for the City and provides professional guidance for  development projects within the city limits and the planning region surrounding the City.  The Planning Department coordinates review of your project from concept to completion to ensure that all new and redevelopment projects comply with city and state regulations.  

This department also works with you on day to day projects such as opening a business, obtaining temporary use permits, installing a sign, constructing a fence, determining flood zone boundaries, and providing general zoning and development information.  


Appointments usually available on two scheduled Thursdays every month

The Planning Department is adopting a new process to review major projects coming into the City of Gallatin and the Planning Region. This will provide better service to the applicant/developer by providing valuable information about major projects. We will implement a project meeting with various department delegates including outside utility districts, where applicable, to address concerns. The major projects included are annexations, rezoning, preliminary master development plans or any major developments for industrial, commercial or residential. A meeting with the applicant/developer will provide valuable input about the project and let the applicant/developer incorporate the concerns into the submittal of the major project.

The applicant/developer shall contact, Suzanne Simon-Administrative Assistant, of the Planning Department, 615-451-5796, to set up the project meeting. A project meeting appointment with the applicant/developer and departments is usually available on two scheduled Thursdays every month with one hour meetings starting at 8:00 am until 12 noon.
