What is a zoning ordinance and why are they used?
The zoning ordinance is the formal categorization of land-use policies applicable to land within a municipality that sets the legal framework. The zoning ordinance establishes permitted land uses and distinguishes between different land-use types.
How does a Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment affect you?
The zoning ordinance ensures that incompatible land uses are not located adjacent to one another. It can assist property owners in identifying what can or cannot be built on their property and how those properties can be used. The general purpose of most zoning ordinances is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public and the expectations of owners and prospective owners.
