Zoning & Planning


Zoning is the way cities regulate how properties are developed. Zoning is conducted by local civic organizations where available. Contact them directly for zoning schedules or development proposals. Contact your local civic association here.

If your area has no civic representation, contact NKCDC. For residential zoning inquiries, contact Andrew Goodman, Community Engagement Director. For commercial zoning inquiries, contact Sam Thomas, Commercial Corridor Coodinator.


Neighborhood plans help guide development in an area. They are driven by residents, with extensive community participation. Here are some development plans in NKCDC's service area.
