Please be advised:
The planning & zoning office* is currently short-staffed and will be for the foreseeable future. Please schedule an appointment for development meetings or property inquiries.
Due to high volumes of permit requests and inquiries, review timelines are expected to be extended substantially.
JPB staff are doing their best to get permit requests out in a timely fashion.
Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
*The GBAJPB Planning & Zoning office, along with the City of Bemidji Building Department are currently located at 315 5th St NW, Suite 2 (north of the downtown Fire Hall).
You can now apply for a permit through the Greater Bemidji Area Joint Planning Board’s new online platform! Click here for more information.
