ZONING, COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING & LAND USE

 Oftentimes, zoning, comprehensive planning and land use are intermingled and treated as one.  However, they are each distinct categories used for different purposes.

The abbreviated definitions:

Zoning:  a “police power” regulation.

Comprehensive Planning:  a vision for future land use.

Land Use:  actual use of the land determined for taxing purposes.
