Planning, Zoning and Permitting

Switzerland County is in an air quality attainment area, simplifying the permitting process. We are committed to helping new businesses get the permitting they need at the local and state levels. Our local permitting is simple, with priority given to business park tenants.

Permitting Process

The Switzerland County Economic Development Corporation will act as liaison between business clients and local/state authorities for all permitting related to building and environmental needs in Switzerland County.

This includes but may not be limited to: agency contacts and communication facilitation; license and permit requirements and applications; permit tracking; and regulatory compliance, such as with the Indiana departments of Environmental Management, Natural Resources, Transportation, Revenue and Workforce Development, and the offices of the Secretary of State and the Attorney General.
