Zoning Administration

The primary function of Zoning Administration in the city is to enforce the regulations of the City’s Zoning Code. This includes providing information on zoning regulations, reviewing documents and plans for compliance, and assisting applicants with requests for land use reviews such as variances and rezonings.
