The zoning designation of a parcel specifies how the land and buildings can be used within the city and county. Zoning districts are created to attract certain types of development such as single-family and multifamily homes, offices, neighborhood business, industry and institutions like schools and hospitals. Examples of zoning violations include illegal signs, illegal use of property, and commercial vehicles in residential areas.
If you need a sign permit, zoning use or customary home occupation permit application, contact zoning enforcement staff at 704-336-7600.
To report a potential violation of the zoning ordinance, call 311 or submit your request online.
- Inspections occur within three business days of reporting.
