Zoning and Maps


The Geographic Technology and Design Section is responsible for making planning-related maps and assembling data. Visit our Interactive GIS Mapping website to create your own maps. We have many of our most requested maps available in PDF format for you to download and print. We also have many raw GIS data layers available for download.
