About Zoning

Orange County’s Zoning Division is responsible for the interpretation and implementation of zoning regulations that have been adopted in accordance with the County’s Comprehensive Plan, (which designates the existing and future land uses). Considerations of zoning regulations include prevailing land uses, growth characteristics, and the character of the respective districts and suitability for particular uses.

Additionally, the Zoning Division supports the Board of Zoning Adjustment by processing variances to the zoning code as well as special exceptions.
