Zoning Code & Subdivision Regulations Update

This web page is intended to provide detailed information regarding an update to the Zoning Code and Subdivision Regulations. The new zoning code was approved by the Board of Aldermen on February 7, 2017.


Parkville Municipal Code Title IV simplifies and consolidates the zoning code from 41 chapters down to 10 chapters. Major items of improvement included using simplified language, using tables and figures to convey regulations rather than verbose text, clearing up and removing sections that duplicate or conflict with one another, updating regulations according to the latest revised state statutes and updating regulations to reflect best-practice standards. Chapters within the zoning code are more organized and have stated purposes and applicability. Additionally, the application process has clearer goals, more explicit guidance for applications, more administrative discretion and appropriate degrees of flexibility to criteria guidance, as well as many other significant changes.
