Zoning is authorized by law and upheld by state and federal court decisions over the last 100 years as a process for local control of land  use necessary to protect the public health, safety and welfare.  The planning principles upon which zoning is based include the need to:

  • Balance competing interests of all landowners and residents with the rights of individual landowners;
  • Help provide a long term community vision;
  • Environmental enhancement and protection;
  • Provision of public services throughout the community;
  • Assure good quality  of life desired by residents;
  • Provision of fairness and consistency with reviews;
  • Minimize land use conflicts; and
  • Promote public health, safety and general welfare.

Please review our plans and ordinances to familiarize yourself with land use regulations and their planning basis.  If you have any questions regarding anything in this section, please email Community Development Director Sanya Phillips.
