The Resource Management Department brings together in one place the engineering, planning, and inspection services provided by Boone County. A citizen is able to access information crossing a wide range of subjects from land use to road construction. Stormwater requirements, stream buffers, floodplain regulations, driveway location, road design, subdivision requirements, and building construction are just some of the areas that the Boone County Resource Management Department can provide assistance.

This department consists of three divisions, the Planning Division , Inspections Division , and Engineering Division.

Please visit our frequently asked questions for answers to many of our most commonly asked questions. The answers to the questions are general as each property has its own characteristics. If in doubt, please call or email our office.
