Business Zoning

The City Council adopted a Zoning Ordinance. Before commencing any construction projects please consult the Zoning Ordinance to determine if any restrictions or prohibitions apply to your planned project.

Under the authority granted by the Constitution of Alabama the City Council adopted a Zoning Ordinance. The first Zoning Ordinance was adopted in 1981. The Council adopted a new Zoning Ordinance which went into effect on June 1, 2014, updating and replacing the 1981 Ordinance.  Zoning Ordinances are intended as a tool to plan progressive growth, preserve the character of neighborhoods, protect property values, and provide for the safety of the public.

The Zoning Ordinance should be consulted before:

The burden of complying with the Zoning Ordinance falls on the property owner. A building or structure that does not comply with the Zoning Ordinance may have to be removed, at the expense of the owner. ​A copy of the current zoning ordinance is available at City Hall or by clicking on the link below.
