What is the Zoning Resolution?

The Zoning Resolution supplements the County’s Subdivision Resolution as the primary regulatory document that the County uses to ensure quality development. The Zoning Resolution includes regulations that address zoning, land uses, building setbacks, building height, parking, landscaping, and application procedures. 

The use of each parcel is guided by the County’s Development Plan and the Zoning Resolution. While the Development Plan is advisory in nature, the Zoning Resolution is the set of regulations that details what each parcel can be used for (such as housing, shopping, or industrial uses) based off the Development Plan. The Zoning Resolution separates uses in different areas of the County called “zones” as a method to prevent uses from conflicting with each other. For example, you wouldn’t want a large factory in the middle of a residential neighborhood because the noise and traffic from the factory would disturb the neighbors.

Zoning Resolution Rewrite Project

The County wide resolution rewrite is to ensure the regulations are modernized to reflect new types of permitted uses and to condense the Resolution for better clarity to assist the public and staff members. The Natrona County 2022 Resolution will provide procedures and rules to protect the community, environment, property owners, and staff members. 

NOTE:  This project is not changing the zoning districts (boundaries).
