DPZ Zoning Evaluation Division

Zoning Evaluation Division

The Zoning Evaluation Division (ZED) is charged with processing all zoning applications submitted to the County, and formulating recommendations to the approving bodies. All land use development proposals and applications are subject to approval by the Board of Supervisors, following a recommendation by the Planning Commission or by the Board of Zoning Appeals. In addition, ZED responds to requests for proffer and development condition interpretations, to requests from residents and community groups concerning zoning, and to requests for litigation support from the County Attorney. ZED also maintains the Zoning Applications Process System (ZAPS) component of the County’s Land Development System (LDS) database, which provides zoning-related information to the public, as well as to internal County users.
