Rezoning (Zoning District Change) is the process of changing the zoning of a property from one district to another, i.e.: M-2 Heavy Manufacturing to R-1A, Single Family Residential, to allow new uses or development on a property that otherwise would not have been allowed before, or for reasons specific to a particular piece of land, such as a property historically being industrial but is now used as a residential property.
A rezoning starts with completing the Zoning District Change Application. Once the application has been received by the appropriate deadline, it is placed on a Planning Commission agenda and from there it would move onto City Council for approval or denial. If approved, the zoning district will officially be changed in the city’s records.
