Land use regulations allows a city to shape its community's environment and property tax base. Zoning is the most important method of applying land use regulations. In Belmont, our zoning regulations are compiled in the Land Development Code. These regulations are adopted by the City Council and applied to all proposed developments within the city and the city's extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). These regulations may be amended periodically, keeping pace with changes in the market, land use, and technology. The Land Development Code is presented by chapters below.
