What are zoning districts?

Zoning is the primary tool that Cities use to establish a framework of what can and cannot happen on every property within the City. Whereas the Comprehensive Plan identifies general use throughout the community (i.e commercial, residential, industrial, mixed-use, etc), zoning regulations establish specific standards for development such as how large a building can be, where structures can be located, and how much parking is required, etc. Because "mixed-use regional" and "mixed-use neighborhood" are new land use classifications, the City must create new zoning standards to govern changes in these areas.
