The City of Lafayette maintains two maps that guide and direct development: the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Plan Map and the Zoning District Map. The Land Use Plan Map designates the existing or potential future use of the property as residential, commercial, industrial, mixed-use, existing or proposed open space, floodplain, etc. The Zoning District Map includes zoning district designations for all property within the city limits and dictates allowable uses and certain building restrictions. By using these two maps one can determine what type of land uses are, or might be, allowed on property within the city limits, or on property outside of the city limits. For additional information about a specific piece of property or potential development, please contact the Planning Division at 303-661-1270.
