Property Use Change in Marion County

Marion County has been a zoned County since 1971. Not all zoning districts are created equal; uses allowed in one district may not be allowed in another. The Marion County Zoning Ordinance is available on the Zoning page at: marioncountyiowa.gov. You may also call the Marion County Zoning Office at 641-828-2231 option 9 or email [email protected] with questions.

It is very important to check the zoning allowances and the zoning classification of your property or a property you may be renting in rural Marion County before a use change takes place. Example: DON’T RELOCATE YOUR BUSINESS TO YOUR HOME BEFORE CHECKING TO SEE IF IT IS ALLOWED BY MARION COUNTY ZONING.

Making the phone call to verify allowed uses eliminates property violations and potential civil penalties for property owners.
