What is a zoning district?
Park City has been divided into a number of areas called zoning districts. Each district is specifically addressed in the Land Management Code and uses (commercial, residential, mixed etc.) are spelled out along with requirements for construction. Each zone is unique and the Code is written to address the specific details of that area.
The General Plan is a policy document designed to guide the future of ParkCity.
The document contains the goals, policies, and action plans for Park City's future direction, community character, land use, open space, growth management, transportation, environmental, housing, community economy, parks and recreation, and historic preservation.
What is the Land Management Code?
The Land Management Code, also referred to as LMC, is a document adopted by the City Council as part of the Municipal Code, that is designed to meet a number of goals including: implement the goals of the General Plan; promote the general health, welfare and safety of Park City inhabitants; protect and enhance the quality of life for Park City residents; protect and preserve peace and good order and aesthetics in Park City; protect the tax base; allow development in a way that encourages preservation of scenic vistas, environmentally sensitive lands, and historic structures; provision of well planned commercial and residential structures; provision of safe and efficient traffic and pedestrian circulation; and to prevent development that is susceptible to natural disaster.
