What is zoning?

Zoning is used to guide future growth by delineating districts and establishing regulations that govern the allowed uses and placement of structures on properties for specific purposes (residential, commercial, industrial, etc.).  All parcels in Mesa County are zoned and regulated under a uniform set of regulations (Mesa County Land Development Code).  Development and construction must meet these criteria before being approved for construction or use.  Zoning protects the public by requiring neighboring properties to conform to the regulations of the zone district. You may look up the zoning on any Mesa County property on our Consolidated Zoning District Map. Or, you may contact us or visit the Planning Department.
