What is Zoning?

Zoning is the means by which communities regulate the use of land and buildings to protect and promote the quality of life within their boundaries.

Under the Zoning Code, every City property is located in a specific zoning district and has an established legal use.

The Manager of Zoning must approve all Certificates of Zoning Compliance (CZC). The issuance of a Certificate establishes that a project or proposal complies with and meets all required zoning regulations for the requested approval. It is required before a Building Permit can be issued.
