The simplest and quickest way to obtain zoning information, as well as other pertinent data, is to visit our interactive mapping service.  This service can provide zoning, ownership information, lot dimensions, etc.  To find out about setback requirements, building heights, yards, lot sizes, lot area per dwelling unit, lot coverage and distance between buildings within your density district, you can either call our department or download our Setbacks & Density Chart.

The Development Services Department also has zoning plat maps which reference property situated in Yavapai County.  The specific property must be identified by the customer.  Land Use staff will verify zoning via telephone, facsimile, by US Mail, or by email.  (Please see our Contact us page for contact information.)  To verify zoning, we will require the Assessor’s Parcel Number (Ex. XXX-XX-XXX) from the customer.  Zoning staff will explain the use regulations and density district.  Please contact this department prior to the close of escrow on a property to ensure your intended use of the land is compatible with its applicable zoning.  For more information, please download and read our Planning & Zoning Ordinance.
