Land Use Regulations

Land use regulations allow a Town to shape its community's environment and property tax base. Zoning, is the most important method of applying land use regulations. In Rutherfordton, our zoning regulations are compiled in the Unified Development Ordinance. These regulations are adopted by the Town Council and applied to all proposed developments with the Town. These regulations may be amended periodically keeping pace with changes in the market, land use, and technology. The Unified Development Ordinance is present by the chapters below.
