What effect does zoning have on my property?

Property must be zoned correctly before a building permit will be issued. In addition, development plans must comply with the development standards for that district. For example, there are increased setback and screening standards in the more intense commercial and industrial districts when located next to residentially-zoned properties. These standards decrease adverse impacts on residential property.
