Welcome to the number one resource for housing developers. If there is something we can help you with after reviewing the following information, feel free to email Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corporation or contact us at 701-252-6861.

The Land Use & Transportation Plan (LUTP) includes a future land use plan which defines growth areas for the City of Jamestown and its two-mile Extraterritorial Area.

The future land use plan serves as a planning tool and does not call for the immediate change in land use or zoning. Existing development designated as a different land use in the future land use plan will be allowed to continue in its current use and zoning district for an indefinite amount of time or at such time a zone change is requested. At a time in which the property owner wishes to change the zoning or land use of a property, the proposed change must comply with the future land use plan as adopted by the City of Jamestown and Stutsman County.
