How Do I Change My Zoning District?

 Zoning Districts are often confused with the Assessment. Your property tax bill will have categories such as agriculture or residential.  That refers only to how the use it taxed and not your actual zoning district.  Please refer to this map to see what your property is zoned.

This is a lengthy process. In some cases, your Town must send out notices and hold a public hearing to change their comprehensive plan. If that is approved, it comes to the Planning & Zoning Office for a public hearing to amend the County’s Plan and Zoning maps. THEN it needs to be approved by the full County Board. This whole process can take several months.
