What is Zoning?

Zoning is the means by which the City ensures protection of properties from incompatible uses. Within the City of Valdosta, there are approximately nineteen separate zoning districts. Each district has a unique series of permitted uses. These uses are described in Chapter 218 of the City of Valdosta Land Development Regulations.
