Zoning

The HTML to link to this page
 

Zoning is a method by which a government (usually a city or county government) specifies how property and land may be used. Zoning separates industrial, commercial, recreational, and residential areas from each other. Residential areas may be further zoned into single-family homes and rental complexes. However, certain combinations of zoning may occur in some areas, such as commercial and residential properties. One purpose of zoning is to control the uses of property; for example, to keep environmentally harmful industries away from residential homes. It can also assure aesthetics in residential areas. Zoning regulates population density and building size. Zoning is not done just once; rather, an area of land may be re-zoned at a later date to reflect changing priorities.
