Zoning

The Zoning Ordinance establishes regulations for how sites can be used (such as residential, commercial, industrial), the size and scale of buildings, the amount of parking required, and other aspects of urban design and development throughout the city. The regulations for a given site depend on the zoning district(s) in which that site is located.

In some cases, the Zoning Ordinance may require that development projects receive a special permit. A proposed project that does not comply with all zoning regulations may seek a zoning variance, which may only be granted by the Zoning Board of Adjustments
