How will this document be used?

This document is a tool to guide development plans and land use decisions when an applicant submits a request to the town to change the zoning district on a property.    Sometimes, when an applicant has a plan for development of a property, they may request a zone change in order to be placed in a zoning district that may be more of a better fit for the development they have in mind.  For example, one zoning district may accommodate certain land uses where another may not.  When a zone change request is submitted, the Town measures that request against the Town’s plans to make sure the change will still be in the best interest of the community.  On the Tollway, zone changes may more frequently come about when there is a change of zone to a Planned Development, or when there is a request to amend an aspect of an existing Planned Development.
