What are zoning districts?

Zoning is the primary tool that Cities use to establish what can and cannot happen on every property within the City.  Whereas a Comprehensive Plan identifies generally allowed uses throughout a community (i.e commercial, residential, industrial, mixed-use, etc), zoning regulations establish the specific standards development must follow in these areas.  Examples of zoning standards include but are not limited to how large a building can be, where structures can be located, and how much parking is required for the use being established.
