Rezoning (Change of Zoning District)

A rezoning is required when a property owner proposes to use their land for purposes other than those permitted by the current zoning classification. The zoning process protects property owners by requiring that related uses of land are located in close proximity to each other in order to create a well-developed and harmonious community in compliance with the City's Comprehensive Plan.
