The Comprehensive Plan is a long-range plan intended to direct growth and physical development of a community for decades. The Plan includes policies relative to physical development, transportation, parks and open space, and economic development. It provides for the distribution and relationship of various land uses. The plan also serves as a basis for future development recommendations.
Whereas, the Zoning Ordinance regulates the use of land and site development. It controls size of land area, size of yards, building coverage, height of structures, amount of landscaping, among several other things. Any violation of the Zoning Ordinance carries a penalty of up to $2,000 dollars for each offense.
