The Planning Department staff assists the Waycross-Ware County Planning Commission and the Ware County Commission in their review and approval of new development or redevelopment projects and provides guidance to the development applicants through a review process. The Ware County Subdivision Regulations, the Ware County Zoning Resolution and the Soil Erosion-Sediment Control Ordinance guide and facilitate the review of development projects, where most are site plans. A rather typical yet very important function of this department is to identify how and where the community should develop. The County’s Comprehensive Plan identifies how and where the community should develop as part of both short and long-range planning by the staff.
