What is zoning?
The city is separated into separated zoning districts according to land use (for example, a single family residence is located within one of the single family residential zoning districts; and a retail use, such as a grocery store, will be located in general retail zoning). Each zoning district has a list of permitted uses and zoning regulations for development which includes: lot coverage, building setbacks, parking requirements, height requirements, roof pitch, building materials, signage and landscaping, etc.

If you are having problems finding the correct zoning for a particular parcel of land, please contact (972)-230-9622 for more information. It is helpful if you have the address and/or legal description of the property.
