Zoning is the process of dividing land in a municipality into zones in which certain land uses are permitted or prohibited. Through our zoning code sizes, setbacks and placement of the building are regulated. The type of zone determines whether planning permission for a given development is granted.

Zoning Code

A zoning ordinance is a written regulation and law that defines how property in specific geographic zones can be used. Learn more about the zoning codes of the City of South Fulton here.

Community Zoning Information Meeting (CZIM) 

The Community Information Meeting (CZIM) is an informal meeting where the community is provided the opportunity to ask questions and/or express concerns to the applicant who has applied for a rezoning or modification here.

Zoning Rewrite Project

The City of South Fulton is in the process of rewriting the Zoning Ordinance previously referred to as the Zoning Resolution. The City’s goal is to develop a clear and user-friendly Zoning Ordinance that is consistent with adopted plans and policies, and reflects the changing environment. Emphasis will be placed on providing a more predictable set of land use regulations and improving the efficiency of the land development process.

The Community Development & Regulatory Affairs Department has hosted a number of Zoning Rewrite Workshops. The City of South Fulton has contracted with Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions (Wood Group) to conduct a comprehensive update to the City’s Zoning Ordinance. The Meetings allowed residents and businesses to provide feedback throughout the process, to both Wood and City Representatives. 

We had a very successful turnout to all of the workshops that where held in June at the Chattahoochee Hills Charter School, Welcome All Park, and Burdett Park Rec Center Gym. We will keep the community up to date and informed about future workshops.
