Abstract

Land use in this country is determined by zoning ordinances adopted by local governments. Their provisions dictate the types of uses to which land may be put, the density at which development may happen, the height, size and shape of buildings, and the mix of commercial, residential, public and other land uses in each locality. Zoning is a key method by which society encourages the development of jobs and housing, protects natural resources and the environment, and defines the character of its communities.
