What is Zoning?

Zoning refers to the laws and regulations that govern the use of land in a particular area. Different areas may be zoned for different types of use, such as residential, commercial, or industrial. Zoning laws determine what types of buildings can be built, where they can be built, and how they can be used. They help to ensure that a community's land use is well-planned and organized, and that different uses are separated to minimize conflicts.
