Expert Insights: How Can I Find out How My Property Is Zoned?


 



 

Zoning ordinances and maps are a matter of public record. Visit your local zoning office, city hall, or some other local planning board and get a copy of your local ordinance. In some areas, if you have a legal description of the property (name, address, tax map, and parcel number), you can call the zoning office or city hall, or even e-mail your request for information. Some communities also have their zoning maps and ordinances online and in local libraries.
