Linn County reminds residents and groups planning public events in unincorporated Linn County that they must apply for a temporary use permit. Permits are required when the type of event planned is not a permitted use within the zoning district where the event will take place.
Due to COVID-19 public health concerns, the Board of Supervisors is considering each temporary use permit application on a case-by-case basis. Event organizers should apply for the permit before investing significantly in the project to avoid the loss of any investment should the application be denied.
Temporary use permit applications are available on the Linn County Planning and Development website. For questions about the permit application, or about what type of uses are permitted in your zoning district, call the Planning and Development Department at 319-892-5130 or email [email protected].
