Land Use And Zoning Explained
Land use includes all of the regulations that govern the use and development of real estate in our communities. Zoning involves how the land within a municipality is allotted in an effort to protect property values and allow for efficient development.
Zoning typically involves the division of areas of a city into residential, commercial and industrial zones. This is why you tend to find retail establishments, medical practices and other businesses in a distinct area of the city separate from the bulk of residential properties such as single-family homes and apartment buildings.
Likewise, it is no accident that industrial buildings, factories, refineries, power plants and other properties are found on the outskirts of town or “on the other side of the tracks” from retail and residential centers.
