  • 1. http://www.pzr.com The Planning & Zoning Resource Corp. (800) 344-2944 Zoning Conformance: Zoning Conforming and Nonconforming Explained
  • 2. http://www.pzr.com Zoning is the mechanism municipalities use to control growth and development, minimize over-crowding and refer to during land use conflicts.
    • Zoning tells property owners what and how they can and cannot
    • build on their land.
    • Zoning laws and definitions can become very complex and The
    • Planning and Zoning Resource Corporation will explain zoning
    • conformance and other areas of zoning as well.
  • 3. http://www.pzr.com The Effect of Zoning on “Pre-existing” Properties
    • A building in existence at the time a new zoning law is adopted
    • is said to be “grand-fathered” or “legally nonconforming” and
    • cannot be declared “nonconforming” or in violation.
    • If the legally nonconforming structure is destroyed beyond the
    • threshold set forth in the Code, the owner may be allowed to
    • rebuild only in accordance with present zoning laws.
    • Pre-existing uses and structures required legislative remedy.
  • 4. http://www.pzr.com Terms Related to Zoning Conformance Status
    • Legal Conforming
    • Legal Nonconforming
    • Nonconforming
  • 5. http://www.pzr.com Conformance Status - Legal Conforming
    • The project meets all zoning district use, area, setback, height,
    • density, and parking requirements according to the most recent
    • zoning ordinance or land use requirements in your jurisdiction.
    •  
    • The (legal) nonconforming rebuildability clause will not apply
    • because the project is legal and has 100% right to rebuild in the
    • event of any percentage of destruction.
  • 6. http://www.pzr.com Conformance Status - Legal Nonconforming
    • The project was conforming at the time of construction but due to
    • changes in the zoning ordinance, the governing jurisdiction, or
    • zoning designation, the project is no longer in conformance.
    •  
    • Jurisdictions have different rules governing legal nonconforming
    • projects. Some allow 100% rebuild in the event of destruction while
    • others require the local Planning Commission approval to rebuild,
    • regardless of the percentage of destruction.
    •  
    • All are subject to the Nonconforming Rebuildability Clause of the
    • zoning ordinance as they have been granted certain legal
    • protections for rebuild.
