Land Use and Zoning Archives

Zoning laws keep cities in order, but might be problematic

Keeping order in cities is a vital function of the city government. In order to do this, laws must be put into place. Some of these laws outline what types of structures can be erected in certain areas, which is known as zoning laws. It is imperative that anyone who plans on purchasing or building a structure ensures that the structure and the intended use fall within the zoning regulations.

Know about property zoning and land usage before purchasing

Land use and zoning laws set forth the possible intended usage possibilities for properties. This gives municipalities a chance to keep specific types of developments near each other and away from others. Typically, residential units are going to be around each other. Within this type of dwelling, the zoning laws will determine what types of residential units can be in the area. This means that it might be possible to build single-family homes or multifamily buildings.
