Cary’s Zoning Compliance Officers (ZCO) provide a range of services, including final site inspections, issuing fence and temporary sign permits, and enforcing the Land Development Ordinance regarding all aspects of zoning.

Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Illegal signage
  • Commercial vehicles parked in neighborhoods
  • Landscape violations
  • Illegal tree clearing
  • Junk cars
  • Site plan violations
  • Home occupations 

Cary ZCOs have jurisdiction within the Town limits and properties within the Town’s Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). Cary currently employs three full time zoning officers and a Zoning Compliance Supervisor.

If you would like to report a possible zoning violation or have questions, call the Planning Department at (919) 469-4046 or contact your district Zoning Officer by email or by phone. Find your district using the Zoning Officer's Map.
