Zoning is the division land into various districts, including residential, commercial, and industrial districts. These districts are known as "zones.". Zoning regulations and restrictions are used to control and direct the development of property within a city or county's borders. Restrictions might include the types of allowed uses and the height and size of buildings.

Zoning is a form of land use regulation. The regulations can cover a variety of building requirements and can be complicated. If you are developing your property or have questions about zoning, it may be advisable to retain a land use attorney to assist with your development plans.
