The City of Lancaster initially adopted a zoning code in 1939. In 2001 the zoning code was completely revised to meet the needs of 21st century development. Like most codes, it is divided into Residential, Commercial and Industrial sections with provisions for Planned Unit Developments as well as overlays for our Historic District, Wellhead Protection areas and our Special Flood Hazard areas.
The zoning code is administered by the Certified Building Department.
