Applicable County Regulations

Zoning Ordinance & Building Permits

In response to questions regarding county regulations that impact property owners on Four Hills Ranch, the following information was compiled to highlight sections that seem to be of interest to our POA members. This is not intended to be a comprehensive list and more complete information can be found at the Community Development Department page of the Coconino County website.


Per the Unsubdivided Lands Public Report for Four Hills Ranch, dated 11/3/2000, the FHR is zoned “G” (considered a “Residential” zone) for purposes of the Zoning Ordinance.

Property setbacks, use type, building type, permanent residences, accessory sheds, fencing, storage, parking, conditional use permits, etc are regulated by the Zoning Ordinance. Some of these topics are also regulated by the Four Hills Ranch POA CC&Rs. When there is a conflict between the two regulations, the more restrictive regulation applies.


Building permits must be obtained to build most large structures, including permanent residences, garages, large sheds, etc. In addition to building permits, all residential structures must have a septic permit approved before a building permit will be issued.

Applicable building codes can be found at Coconino County Building & Safety Department:
