Humboldt County is located in the rugged high desert region of north-central Nevada, bordered on the north by Oregon and by neighboring Nevada counties to the west, south and east. The County’s 9,626 square miles offer some of the most varied, spectacular scenery in the State and a wide array of recreational opportunities.

The Humboldt County Planning Department provides information on zoning districts, building setbacks, flood planes and other land use topics along with applications for zone changes, conditional or special use permits, site plans, parceling, subdivisions, variances or other issues on property located in the City of Winnemucca and/or Humboldt County.
