The zoning section reviews development projects for conformance with the zoning regulations, and we work with applicants when they would like to rezone their property, request approval of a detailed site development plan when required, or seek relief from certain zoning requirements (e.g., their setbacks or permitted uses). We also handle general inquiries about zoning requirements.
