No, the Assessor’s Office information is the actual use on the property, which is different from zoning. Zoning is all of the uses that could be allowed on the property. The Assessor’s office goes to the site and determines how the property is currently being used, for example if they see a residence on the property, it is classified as residential. If there is nothing on the property it is classified as vacant. The zoning is a designation that is used primary by Planning & Zoning to determine what use could be on the property. For example, the vacant land, if it is zoned Commercial – One the owner may be able to obtain a permit to build an office building. If it is zoned Residential – One, then they may be able to obtain a permit to build a single family home.
