Zoning Verification Request


There are two types of written zoning verifications for parcels within the city limits. For either type please provide the correct street address, property ID number or other specific identifier for the parcel.

 

1.

Basic Zoning Verification Request: A planner will fill out the form indicating the future land use designation and zoning classification of the property. The planner may add short explanatory notes as applicable. The basic request will be provided to you at no charge and can be sent to you electronically or via regular mail.
