Chapter 26 of the Municipal Code lists the various zoning districts within the City and includes the regulations for each district. The zoning map indicates the location and boundaries of these districts. If property is annexed into the City, the property is required to be zoned in accordance with the Municipal Code. If a proposed land use does not comply with the zoning district regulations, a re-zoning must be considered before the development can be approved. Zoning and rezonings require public hearings before both Planning Commission and City Council.

Application Process

A pre-application meeting with City staff and a neighborhood meeting is required before submitting a formal application. Completed applications with accompanying required documents should be submitted to the Lafayette Planning and Building Department at City Hall, 1290 South Public Road. Application fees are due at time of submission.
