Zoning Districts & Regulations
The primary purpose of zoning is to ensure that adjacent land uses are compatible with one another. Zoning helps bring about orderly growth and change, controls population density and helps create attractive, healthy communities. It also helps assure property owners and residents that the characteristics (and property values) of nearby areas will remain stable.
Refer to the City’s Zoning Map (PDF) to verify a property’s zoning designation.
