Applying for a change of zoning in Arizona

| Mar 13, 2018 | Uncategorized |

When you are making any significant change to your property, it is likely that you will need to look into the zone that your property is situated on, and assess the situation from there. Zones have a large impact on the way homeowners and property developers in Arizona can make modifications.

Zoning regulations say what it is possible to do within your area. This could be in regard to the height of the buildings, the style and the amount of land that can be built upon. Zoning provides a way for the government to control urbanization, and mold the overall logistics of towns and cities.

How can I apply for a change of zoning?

If you want to modify your property and learn that such a modification is not possible in your area, you may want to look into applying for a change of zoning. This can be done by applying to your local jurisdiction.

Your local jurisdiction has its own specific rules and regulations. However it is likely that there will be a fee for the application that you make. You must outline your plans in detail. Many people have architects and surveyors maps out the plans to increase their chances of gaining a successful change of zoning.

What are variances?

You may instead want to apply for a zoning variance, which does not change the zone that you are in, but instead grants a waiver for your change of plans.

If you want to make a change to your property in Arizona, you should conduct research to ensure that you are complying with all regulations. An experienced attorney can also provide important guidance.
