Zoning Conditions

Conditions are a set of additional written rules or regulations that can be added to a zoning application. Zoning conditions may be requested by an applicant, recommended by the planning department, Community Council, Planning Commission, or imposed by the Board of Commissioners, as a part of any proposed change to the official zoning map.

Not every zoning application has conditions, but they can be a useful tool to ensure certain guidelines are followed once the application gets approved. For example, common conditions can include regulations on building height, use of certain building materials, signage rules, landscaping details or building a fence. Once the conditions are attached and approved along with the application, they are valid and enforceable for the life of the zoning.
