Hernando is a fast-growing county with a lot of building activity. It can be difficult to keep up with what's going on in your neighborhood or near your place of business. This
feature is designed to help keep you informed, in case you want to appear before public
officials and ask questions or comment on a particular project. We will publish the map
and proposed projects before each county Planning and Zoning Commission
meeting and before each land use meeting of the County Commission. The
Planning and Zoning Commission typically makes recommendations to the County Commission, which then makes the final decision on projects. Here are the items on the agenda for Wednesday's County Commission land use meeting. The meeting begins at 9 a.m. in the County Commission chambers at the Hernando County Government Center, 20 N Main St., Brooksville.
