Planning & Zoning

The Planning & Zoning Division performs a variety of services intended to protect, maintain, and develop an attractive, safe, and healthy environment. Primary functions address property development and land use activities occurring in the City.

Zoning regulates land uses within the City. Each parcel in the City is assigned to a zone which describes the regulations under which that land may be used. The Land Development Code identifies allowable uses and sets standards such as minimum lot size, maximum building heights, and set-back requirements.
