Definition: Zoning is a legal method for municipalities to control the use of real property in certain specified areas. A zone is created and only certain types of property, or certain uses of properties, are allowed in the zone.
Examples:
An area zoned Residential/4 Units: In this area, only residential structures, such as homes or condominiums could be constructed, with a limit of four units per lot or acre. You could not utilize a structure in this zone as a commercial storefront.
