Zoning authority, which is granted by the State, allows local jurisdictions to manage where different types of land uses and buildings are located in the city. It also allows the City to control the density of development and types, sizes, and setbacks of buildings.
Zoning controls are intended to:
Encourage the most appropriate use of land within Cody
Promote health, safety, and general welfare
Facilitate the provision of transportation, water, sewer, parks, other public systems
Preserve land values
Cody is divided into zoning districts, with land use controls customized to each. The zoning map assigns each property in the city to a zoning district. The zoning regulations for each zoning district are set forth in the Zoning Ordinance.
