  • Created an online permitting checklist, increasing transparency for community members and solar installers
  • Reviewed local zoning codes and identified restrictions that intentionally or unintentionally prohibit solar PV development
  • Allowed solar by-right accessory use in all zones (so solar installations don’t require special permits or hearings)
  • Cross-trained both inspection and permitting staff on solar PV
  • Provided a streamlined permitting pathway for small PV systems
We are proud of the steps the Planning & Development Department has taken in becoming involved in sustainability programs this year. By adopting solar friendly practices, like streamlining the permitting process and receiving the SolSmart designation, the Department is striving to assist Corinth residents and businesses to access affordable and renewable solar energy to meet their needs.
