Zoning Resolution

Jefferson County Zoning Resolution header

Zoning provides for the orderly growth of communities through the designation of areas for each type of development such as residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial. All four types of activity are essential to the economy of an area, and yet it is not desirable for the enterprises which produce odors, noise, dust or smoke to be located in the midst of a heavily populated residential district. Zoning allows ample area for all activities while maintaining property values through the designation of specific areas for each. The Zoning Resolution was originally adopted by the Board of County Commissioners on May 6, 1946.
