The Purpose Of Zoning
Last updated 7/22/2020 at 3:55pm
To concerns regarding the Highway 276 Dollar General Store construction, county commissioners accurately responded that without county zoning codes they lack authority to intervene. Zoning codes prohibit construction incompatible with surrounding properties and negatively impacting safety, privacy, quality of life, property values, etc. of existing residents by establishing codes for residential/commercial use, maximum density, traffic flow, parking, etc. Because Brevard has zoning codes, citizens might assume these codes protect their neighborhoods from undesirable developments.
