Zoning & Land Use

Zoning defines the use of parcels of land by assigning them a classification or district. The standards adopted for each district specify the:
  • Type of building that can be constructed or improvements made
  • Distance it must be located from the property lines
  • Height of the building
  • Minimum square footage of a building
  • Other requirements
