Zoning is the regulation of the use, location, height, number and size of land, buildings or structures within a specified zone or area of the community. Its purpose is to protect property values and preserve the desired character of the community, while providing for orderly growth and uniform development. Since any zoning is a restriction on the unlimited use of land by the owner, it must be reasonable and/or protect public health and safety.

The Zoning Code regulates the type of activity that may occur within specific geographic areas of the city. By extension, zoning laws determine the placement of structures on a given site. While there are subcategories, land uses can be grouped under 3 general categories: residential, commercial and industrial.
