Grand Rapids is split into zone districts. The Zoning Ordinance is the set of laws we have for these zones. We review land uses based on the location and other factors.
In each zone district land uses are
- Permitted by Right (P) - Allowed in the zone district with Staff review
- Special Land Use (S) - Subject to Planning Commission review and approval
- Qualified Review (QR) - Subject to Planning Commission review and approval under certain conditions
- Prohibited (X)
The common zone types are residential, commercial and industrial. The intent of zoning to keep our neighborhoods and businesses strong. Check out the Zoning Ordinance below.
