Why are zoning and land use so important in the City?
Zoning and land use planning exists to protect the health, safety and welfare of the community and to help preserve property values. When moving or establishing a new business check the location's zoning to be sure it is allowed in the area of the City where you plan for it to be located. Staff can determine the zone or zones that are compatible with your intended business or construction.
