How Does Zoning Relate to Land Use?

The Future Land Use Plan indicates the land use designation assigned to real property. The policies governing land use are outlined in the Comprehensive Plan, the supporting document for the Land Use Plan. The regulations, which implement the policies of the Future Land Use Plan, are located in the Land Development Regulations, which also includes the official Zoning Map. The Land Development Regulations outlines the various zoning districts that are appropriate, given the Land Use designation for a particular site. The Zoning designation for a particular site must be consistent with the designated Land Use. Contact the Development Services Department for more information regarding zoning and land use compatibility.
