Zoning Guide

Zoning Guide

 Find out the zoning of a piece of land by using Web Maps. Here's how:

1. Use the "Search" options on the right side of the map to find the property of interest.
2. Once zoomed into the property, go to the "Map Layers" tab on the right side of the map and turn on the "Zoning" layer.
3. On the toolbar at the top of the page, open the "Advanced Tools" menu and click the "Identify" tool.
4. Click on the property, and the zoning information should appear in the "Results" tab on the right of the map.


Use this guide for zoning information, setback requirements and permitted uses for your property. Clatsop County’s Land Use Planning office can provide additional zoning information Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. by phone at (503) 325-8611 or by e-mail to comdev@co.clatsop.or.us
