Chapter 11: Land Use and Zoning
This Chapter presents an overview of land use characteristics and zoning regulations that guide the operation and development of property in the Village.
- Land Uses described herein are based on classifications made by the Village assessor for tax purposes.
Specifically, this Chapter addresses:
- 11.1 Existing Land Use
- 11.2 Existing Land Use Regulations (Adopted Local Laws; Zoning).
- 11.3 Future Land Use
Why is this important?
- Land Use regulations are the most common and direct method of shaping the physical form and composition of a community. Regulations should address the specific and unique needs and desires of a community while ensuring the health and safety of its citizens.
- Land Use regulations need to be updated regularly as new land uses are introduced, unforeseen issues develop, and the needs and desires of the citizenry change over time.
