Zoning regulations define how land can be used and the location, size and height of buildings. Zoning divides a jurisdiction into multiple districts. Typically, those districts are commercial, industrial, or residential. Each district contains a distinct set of regulations that are uniformly applied to all properties within the district.
Zoning ordinances consist of regulations which guide community development and growth within each district. In the City of Cottage Grove, zoning regulations are the primary tool we use to implement the vision of the city's Comprehensive Plan.
