Zoning is the process by which the Town regulates the development and use of property. Zoning laws establish rules governing what you do with your property: what uses are allowed, how big structures can be, what buildings need to look like, etc. The Town gets its authority to establish zoning laws from Utah State Code section 10-9a-102.
There are two main parts to the Town's zoning laws: the zoning map and the zoning ordinance.
The zoning map identifies different land use zones throughout the town. The Town currently has seven zones: Foothill Residential, Valley Residential, Village Commercial, Central Commercial, Agricultural, Public Use, and Federal Lands. Every property in the Town is in one of these seven zones.
The zoning ordinance (also called the land use ordinance) establishes rules for each of the seven zones. These rules state what uses are allowed in each zone. They also control how big and tall buildings on a property can be, and how those buildings need to be designed. The Town's zoning ordinance is found in Title 10 of the Town Code.
