What is Zoning?

Zoning can be defined as the division of a jurisdiction, such as a township, into separate districts for the purpose of regulating the use of land in each district in order to promote the orderly development of the area and to protect the public health, safety and general welfare. Zoning regulations contain two parts, a zoning map and a zoning text or resolution.
