Why is Zoning Important?
Zoning is an important responsibility of a municipal government and authorized by state law under the powers of the City to control nuisances. Zoning allows the local government to regulate the development and use of land within its jurisdiction through the establishment of districts. The city regulates land use, and site conditions with zoning districts. The intent of zoning is to protect health, safety, and welfare of the public as well as preserve the development rights of private landowners. In addition, zoning plays a major role in the preservation of existing neighborhoods as well as in the development of new neighborhoods. Through the zoning process, the City of Jarrell strives to promote compatible land use patterns and minimize conflicts between uses.
