Determining a Property’s Zoning Classification

To find a property’s zoning classification, locate the address on one of the City’s Zoning Maps. Select ONE method below:

  • Interactive Zoning Map (access online): Enter the property’s street address in the search field, click on the address number on the map, and see the "Zone_Code" for the zoning district abbreviation; OR
  • City of DeKalb Official Zoning Map (downloadable PDF): Use the zoom feature to view the address numbers on the map, and refer to the color-coded key at the bottom.

Zoning District Regulations

To learn what types of uses are allowed in each zoning district, as well as applicable zoning regulations, refer to Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) Article 5 Zoning District Regulations.


Online access to the UDO is for informational purposes only. Every effort is made to provide complete and accurate information; however, some time lapses between amendment adoption and online updates. Do not rely upon the online UDO for use in any legal proceeding. The official copy of the UDO is available for review at City Hall located at 164 E. Lincoln Highway.
