Conceptual Zoning Districts

The Monroe County Urbanizing Area Plan proposed the creation of 4 general character districts, each composed of a series of subdistricts, for the Urbanizing Area.

The districts are intended to consolidate and simplify the pre-existing set of zoning districts. They may be geared toward unique land use and development form considerations for different areas. Categories may be further differentiated or combined as the County Development Ordinance is developed.

Employment Districts (E) are intended to advance the objectives for continued economic development opportunities.

Community Districts (C) are intended to provide a positive first impression with a unique mixture of uses, engaging design, and vibrant connections to urban areas.

Neighborhood Districts (N) are intended to accommodate a wide variety of primarily residential uses, housing types, densities and neighborhood development contexts.

Special Districts (QL) accommodate unique uses and development conditions, such as the Quarry Landscape district.
