The primary responsibility of the Zoning Division is to administer and enforce the city zoning code. The intent of zoning regulations is to allow property owners the reasonable use of their property as long as the use is not detrimental to abutting properties or to the neighborhood. Every property in the city has a zoning classification and permitted use that determine how the property can be used.
Zoning staff review all proposals and applications for compliance, work as a liaison to Board of Zoning Appeals, provide information about properties, and explain how zoning regulations apply to properties. Zoning staff also work to ensure the compliance of all existing residential and commercial properties.
