Land Use Information

The information displayed on this web site is derived from multiple sources and assigns each parcel of land to a land use category from a predetermined list. Every effort is made to achieve accuracy and consistency in this process. However, there is no guarantee of complete accuracy and the user should be aware of this. These land use files are updated periodically and every parcel does not necessarily reflect the use as of the date given the file. This display of current (2014) land use is presented to the public for general information purposes only, and the assignment of land use has no legal significance or consequences for property owners. Land use as displayed is not an indicator of existing zoning or permitting of current or future land use.
