What is a Zoning Ordinance?

A zoning ordinance (also called a zoning code) is the set of rules that a local or county government adopts to regulate the use of land, particularly when new development is proposed. Different land uses may include residential, commercial, industrial, or a mix of uses. Zoning Ordinances also include rules for certain qualities of new development such as site design, landscaping, and signage.
