What is zoning?

Zoning is a local government's ability to regulate the use and development of land. It is designed to protect property values by preventing the location of incompatible uses in close proximity to each other. Planning involves the development of programs, plans, and policies for the creation of a better community. Zoning and Planning are closely related.
