Local control of the use of land (with some exceptions, such as state and federal land uses) is an accepted legal principle. Land use is controlled through the separation of land into various use areas, called zoning districts. The rules governing these districts are contained in a zoning ordinance which includes provisions controlling the type and intensity of development allowed.
The original ordinance was adopted on April 13, 1987. The current Zoning Ordinance was passed on September 28, 1998.
The Zoning Ordinance is located in the Official Documents page of this website. Zoning Applications/Permits are located on the Village Forms & Permits page of this site. Click here to view Zoning map for the Village of Kent City.
