Zoning regulations ensure that land in the City is being used efficiently and appropriately. Zoning is a watchdog on the beauty of the community. It ensures that properties are being used in the most appropriate manner and that overcrowding does not occur. It also ensures that homes and businesses meet certain community standards.
The three primary services of Zoning are to develop and maintain the Landuse Regulations (zoning), enforce zoning controls and provide information, and make recommendations on projects to the Planning Commission that acts as the City’s Board of Adjustments and Appeals.
For zoning complaints requiring investigation, contact James Schedin in the Police Department at 952-949-6200.
