What is the relationship between the Comprehensive Plan and the Zoning Ordinance?
The Comprehensive Plan generally guides land use and provides the vision of the City. The Zoning Ordinance is part of the City Code and regulates the type, scale and intensity of development which may occur in the specific zoning districts. To fully understand how a parcel of land can be used, you first need to know how the land is planned in the Comprehensive Plan, and then determine how the land is zoned. The Comprehensive Plan also serves as a guide for the Planning Board to make zoning request decisions.
