The City of Jeannette Planning Commission has been working diligently over the last several months to assess our community, analyze our current zoning and adopt a better set of zoning laws for our City. Throughout this process they have worked with a number of consultants from private firms, County departments and City officials. We hope to adopt the new zoning Ordinance by September 2017.
