Topic - Planning & Zoning

This page summarizes KnowledgePlex content about Planning & Zoning.

Land within an area or community may be divided - or zoned - by a government into districts or zones. Each zone has regulations that specify the allowed use, form, and density of development. For example, some areas of a neighborhood may be designated only for residential use and others for industrial or commercial use such as stores, gas stations, etc. The zoning power of local governments is granted by state enabling statutes, the first of which was enacted in the 1920s.
