Zoning is how cities regulate the use of land.
Along with city planning, zoning helps protect neighborhoods, support retail businesses or industries and channel traffic in a way that makes sense.
Some examples of zoning categories are industrial, light industrial, commercial, light-commercial, agricultural, single-family residential, multi-unit residential, parks and schools.
Typical zoning regulations address building height, bulk, lot area, setbacks, parking, signage and density.
