Zoning Ordinance

The Zoning Ordinance is an adopted municipal law that governs allowed uses for all sections of land within the City, called zoning districts.  It also regulates the physical characteristics of development within each district, such as setbacks from lot lines, the amount of land on a parcel that may be covered by buildings, etc.

The Zoning Ordinance and a Zoning Map of the City of Watertown are available to view and download via the links below.
