The Zoning Ordinance and its associated Zoning Map define the specific categories or districts where residential, commercial, industrial and other types of land uses are allowed to be located. The document provides the details of what can be developed in the particular districts and how it can be developed. The Zoning Ordinance also defines the developmental procedures for a particular land use or developmental consideration. The current Zoning Ordinance (Ordinance #8514) became effective on October 21, 2003. This document upgrades and replaces the previous ordinance which dated from 1981.
The Zoning Office also provides staff support to the Board of Zoning Appeals.
