Rezonings & Overlay Proposals

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

When the zoning map does not support the applicant’s intended use of the property, a request is made to amend the map to change a subject property to a zoning district classification that will permit the proposed land use(s). The rezoning process allows for the review of proposed modifications either to the Zoning Maps or to the text of the Zoning Ordinance.


The Planning Commission recommends either approval or disapproval to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen of the Ordinance to rezone a property.
