2014 Letters of Determination

The Zoning Administrator issues determination letters resulting from requests by property owners, developers, architects, and land use attorneys inquire about the zoning regulations applicable to specific development proposals. These letters offer guidance to requesting parties as to whether a proposed project, such as a new building, an addition to an existing building, or a use change, conform to the Planning Code (sometimes referred to as the Zoning Code). Read more about Planning Code Section 307(a) which outlines the duties of the Zoning Administrator...

Once these letters are issued, applicants still must obtain all applicable required building permits and/or certificates before a use can commence or a building can be built.

Please see the links below for those letters issued by the Zoning Administrator for the most recent time period, which are identified by address.
