Zoning Tools: Use Groups

Use Groups

Permitted uses are grouped in 18 use groups based on the similarity and compatibility of their functions. The use groups are permitted in appropriate zoning districts either as-of-right or, if certain conditions are met, by authorization or special permit.

This page provides a general overview of use regulations in respective zoning districts and is not meant to serve as a substitute for the actual regulations which are to be found in the Zoning Resolution.

Uses allowed in residential districts are listed in Article II, Chapter 2. Uses allowed in commercial districts are listed in Article III, Chapter 2. Uses allowed in manufacturing districts are listed in Article IV, Chapter 2.

The use group chart below illustrates which use groups are permitted within each zoning district. For detailed information about which uses are permitted as-of-right or by discretionary action refer to the Chapter relating to the district or Article VII.

Hold your cursor over a Use Group number below for more information.
