What is zoning?
Zoning involves setting up standards for future physical development of a community and enacting laws (ordinances) that regulate the use and development of privately owned land so that those standards are followed. Some regulations are the same within a particular jurisdiction, while some may vary from zoning district to zoning district. They involve controls over the use of land, numerous tract development standards, a few structural dimension standards, and performance standards.
