Zoning 101

Zoning is a technique used by local governments in land use planning to regulate how land is used and what functions can be performed in businesses located on that land. Property is zoned into commercial and residential uses, so a commercial building cannot be built in a residential neighborhood and vice versa, unless there is a change, or amendment, in zoning ordinances. Additional zoning districts may be added from time to time upon the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Board to the Town Council. Click here for Official Zoning Map.
