Zoning Enforcement

James City County has nineteen different zoning designations in the Ordinance, fifteen that have been applied.   Each district has a set of by-right uses and most have a set of specially permitted uses.  To determine if a parcel is zoned appropriately for a given use you can locate the address on the zoning map or use our Property Information System found on the Planning or Zoning home page. Once you have the zoning designation go to Chapter 24 of the Zoning Ordinance to find a complete listing of by-right and specially permitted uses.
