Zoning Ordinance

The United City of Yorkville adopted a new Zoning Ordinance on November 25, 2014. While there have been many individual text amendments to the Zoning Ordinance over the years, a revision of the entire ordinance has not been done since the Zoning Ordinance was approved in 1974.

The Zoning Ordinance is a set of written regulations that define how property may be used in specific geographic zones.  This document regulates lot size and coverage, density, placement and height of structures, and types of uses within each zoning district.
