Find your zoning via the Property Profile online tool
After the Property Profile page loads, follow these steps:
- Click on the “Address Search” Icon at the top of the page
- Enter the address in the Address Search Field
- Click "Next" button
- The page will populate with information about the property. In the first section there is a Zoning Profile link.
Clicking on the link will take you to the Zoning Profile Report that will tell you your zoning district and zoning overlays (such as a Neighborhood Plan), and Zoning Ordinance (if zoned after 2000).
Determine what you can do with your property
Once you have determined what you want to build: a new home, addition, renovation, deck, shed, etc., Residential Review staff can guide you to applicable regulations.
Review staff are available 8:00am to noon on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, for free 20 minute consultations to answer your questions. If you need more time you may schedule a Residential Preliminary Plan Review paid consultation.
Depending on your project needs, you may want to hire a licensed professional such as an engineer, architect, or surveyor to provide assistance with the project or completing the permitting process. Your reviewer can tell you which parts of your application need to be filled out by a licensed professional during your consultation.
Some customers also choose to hire permit expediters to help them apply for permits. You can search for permit expediters on the internet.
