Zoning is what keeps a residential district residential, a commercial district commercial, an industrial district industrial, and so on. Zoning dictates what types of properties can co-exist in a particular area within a municipality. For example, some areas are zoned strictly for single-family homes (possibly with exceptions for things like religious buildings or community centers), while certain mixed-used or transitional zoning districts may allow for select businesses and some single and multi-family homes to exist in the same area. Zoning can also regulate more specific details of construction, such as maximum building height, minimum lot size, or how far a house needs to be setback from the road.
The project website depicts the difference between the old and new zoning designations and provides the updated Land Development Code and Zoning Map. Please contact Debbie Flynn, Planner II, if you have any questions or concerns at email@example.com or 719-488-1604.
