A City on the Right Track

Community Development


Welcome to the Etowah Community Development page. The City of Etowah is growing and it is our job to ensure that this growth is a positive for the community. We are responsible for retail recruitment, assisting developers in bringing new construction to Etowah,  building inspections and codes enforcement.

Chris Ingram is the Director of Community Development.  He oversees the operations of the department and personally works with developers to find the best way to build in Etowah. Chris issues all building and demolition permits, and performs weekly inspections to ensure compliance. As a resident of Etowah, he takes personally the responsibility of codes enforcement and he is willing to work with property owners to make their properties compliant, sanitary and pleasing to the community at large.

Regarding codes enforcement: The City of Etowah has adopted the 2012 ICC Building, Property Maintenance, Mechanical, Plumbing and other codes. This, and the existing municipal code, is what we will be enforcing.

Regarding building permits: If you are doing much more than painting the interior of your house, it is advisable to contact us and ask if you need a permit. It is likely that you do, and we are enforcing permit requirements.

If you have any questions, you may contact us at (423) 263-2202 (Press "3") or commdev@cityofetowahtn.com

The Community Development Department is located at the corner of 8th St. and Ohio Avenue, adjacent to the Fire Hall.
