Planning & Zoning


Zoning authority, which is granted by the State, allows local jurisdictions to manage where different types of land uses and buildings are located in the town. It also allows the town to control the density of development and types, sizes, and setbacks of buildings.

Wingate is divided into zoning districts, with land use controls customized to each. The zoning map assigns each property in the city to a zoning district. The zoning regulations for each zoning district are set forth in the Land Use Ordinance.
