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 Rutherfordton Development Ordinance can be found below by Article including the Table of Uses and Technical Specification Manual.
