Why is zoning important? Zoning ensures that the wrong businesses are not built or opened next to another business that will hinder either or; an oil refinery opening next to an elementary school. In regards to Chicago, every property resides in a zoning district; to help work with the zoning districts’ regulations, and Chicago’s continued residential and manufacturing growth, 2nd City Zoning announced its launch of their interactive mapping application for the Chicago area.
With 2nd City Zoning you can now find out quickly how a building is zoned, learn of the regulations related to a specific location of a building, and explore the zoning patterns through the city. 2nd City Zoning makes it simple for you to view the 12 zoning categories (e.g. residential, business, commercial, downtown, manufacturing etc.) and quickly view each zoning district's page and zoning ordinance.
