    Any counties in southern Indiana without zoning laws?

    Does anyone know which counties in southern Indiana have no zoning laws? Or could you tell me how to find out?

    Thank you so much.

    Does the KKK still have substantial behind-the-scenes influence in Martinsville?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

What's the best thing about Montgomery County?? NO ZONING!! Everytime I see that billboard, the planner inside of me dies a little. Next time I am driving on I-74 I will try to get a picture of it.

    Yeah, buy a piece of paradise and hope the guy next door doesn't decide to create a tire dump!

    Same person calls the county, "My neighbor is wantin to build a hog farm, why can't you stop em?"

    Tire dumps, junkyards, and trailer parks have turned even the most anti-zoning rural New Yorkers into advocates, including my late father.

    isn't it amazing that people will curse our existence as planners but when something they perceive as bad happens we're the first to be called and can't get their quick enough.

    Sadly, what many rural people don't understand is that zoning doesn't have to be onerous, and it really is a protection for people to maintain their ways of life. Zoning rural land as agricultural protects the right to farm. Waiting for a town/county to become suburbanized before establishing zoning puts the zoning power in the hands in people who want their "country life" sanitized because the town board will probably represent more suburbanites than farmers.
