Ashville, Alabama


Building & Zoning Department

The City of Ashville adopted a zoning ordinance in 2000.  While a lot of homes are grandfathered in, once you change something (i.e. pull out an old mobile home, your current home is destroyed, etc.) you must adhere to the zoning ordinance and current regulations.  If you are considering building, purchasing a new home, etc., please contact City Hall for assistance in order to comply with zoning regulations.  The ordinance is available for view at City Hall and the most recent amendments are available online under our City Ordinances section of the this webpage or by clicking here.

If you are purchasing a new mobile home, you must purchase a mobile home permit thru City Hall.  The permit is available below and the fee is $150.00.  The building inspector must inspect foundations, electrical, plumbing, etc.
