What is Zoning?

Zoning is a set of policies adopted by the City Council to regulate the use of land within the city. The location, size, and height of buildings and signs, size of lots, yards, and other open spaces are all regulated by Zoning. Zoning also regulates what you can use your property for and what you can build on it. The basis of Zoning is to protect the health, safety, and general welfare of the community and its residents.
