  • The use table tells you whether or not a given use is (1) permitted, (2) conditional or (3) not allowed for each zoning category.
    • Conditional uses may be approved by either the Board of Municipal and Zoning Appeals (BMZA) or the City Council (by ordinance) following a public hearing on the matter.
  • The bulk regulations table tells you how large a building may be on a site - it tells you about height restrictions, minimum lot area, minimum size of yards, and maximum floor area ratios.
