What is the zoning of my property?
  • For quick reference purposes, you may look up the zoning for your property by connecting to the interactive Web map. Type your address in the box in the top left side of the screen and hit enter, or zoom into your property if the address is not found. Then look at the symbols on the top right corner of the screen and click on the one that looks like three squares stacked on top of each other. This will open up a "layers list." Check the box next to "Planning and Zoning", and the map should change colors and a zoning label should appear. Also, you may now click on the map, and the zoning information for any given parcel should appear in a text box. 
  • "Case Number," "Class" and "Use" are the three pieces of information you may need to figure out allowable uses for a site. Class indicates the zoning district, and Case Number can help city staff look up details of the property if the Zone involves any sort of site plan. Use is a quick reference code for site plan districts. If you click the arrow next to the Planning and Zoning layer box, you can see that there are other layers of information that could be shown in the map, such as Overlay Districts. It is easiest to have only one subcategory displayed at a time. Call (972) 721-2424 if you need assistance with this.
  • To find out details about what uses are allowed on your property, please view the Municode or call us at (972) 721-2424.
  • To receive official verification of your property’s zoning, please submit a  zoning verification request along with a payment of $50 per parcel you are researching. The request may be submitted by fax, but a verification letter will not be sent until payment has been received.
