What is Zoning?#

Example of zoning

As zoning inspectors, we are responsible for administering and enforcing zoning regulations to guide the use of land and maintain orderly development. These regulations pertain to such things as the establishment of different zone districts, permitted uses in the various districts, signs, fences, home occupations, parking, landscaping, and general site layout and design.
