Zoning and plans

Several areas in our region, including all municipalities, have regulations that control use of land through application of what planners call "zones." This places potential land use into general categories, to define - for example - where businesses can operate. If you're thinking of building, check here first to find out what you can - and can't - do.

If your idea doesn't quite fit, don't fret: you may be able to ask for what's called a variance. This is an exemption from general rules. (Ask our planning department for more information.)
