What is zoning?

Zoning is a method of urban planning that ensures orderly, attractive, and economically-sound development. Land is divided into areas called zones or districts, each with a set of regulations for development. These districts may be defined for a single use, they may combine several compatible activities by use, and/or they may govern the density, size, and shape of allowed buildings in the districts.
