What Are Zoning Laws or Ordinances?

ZoningThe separation or division of a municipality or township into districts; the regulation of buildings and structures in such districts in accordance with their construction and the nature and extent of their use; and the dedication of such districts to particular uses designed to serve the general welfare of the residents. 

Zoning therefore is the regulation of the use of real property by the local government in accordance with the wishes of the residents who generally must approve these ordinances. These zoning laws can restrict a particular territory to a particular use – for example, residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural or some other use. The local governing body must enact the regulations in accordance with a well-considered and comprehensive plan intended to avoid arbitrary exercise of government power. A comprehensive plan is the general design to control the use of properties in the entire municipality. 

Zoning ordinances divide the governed area into separate residential, commercial, and/or industrial/agricultural districts thereby preserving the desirable characteristics of each type of setting. These laws generally limit dimensions in each zone, e.g. two acre zoning for residential housing. Many zoning regulations require certain building features and limit the number and location of issues like parking and loading areas or the use of signs. Other regulations may provide space for schools, parks, or other public facilities. 

Zoning helps the governing body bring about orderly growth and change. It can control population density and helps create attractive, healthful residential areas. In addition, zoning helps assure property owners and residents that the characteristics of nearby areas will remain stable, and natural features such as aquifers and waterways are protected. 

Once put in place, the governing body has a fiduciary or legal responsibility to uphold the existing zoning laws, and provide a public forum where particular and/or unique exceptions or variances can be heard by the community and debated.
