The Lee County Planning Commission was created in 2007 by Act 2007-401 of the Alabama Legislature, which authorized the Planning Commission to adopt a master plan and zoning regulations that apply within its planning jurisdiction.
The Lee County Master Plan was adopted by the Planning Commission in 2010. The 2010 Plan gives an overview of the County , its development history and existing conditions and, most importantly, a direction for future growth and development. It serves as a foundation for zoning regulations and provides guidance for county services to the public and capital improvements to infrastructure and community facilities.
The Lee County Zoning Regulations are applied by election beat within unincorporated areas of Lee County, provided a majority of qualified electors vote in favor of zoning within their beat. On May 18, 2021, the majority of electors in Beat 13 within the Beulah community voted to authorize zoning by a 2 to 1 majority. The Planning Commission adopted the regulations on May 19, 2021, and the County Commission approved them on May 24, 2021.
