Zoning Why do you need to know the zoning? What does this mean for your project? Zoning is important to understand because there are use-specific codes that pertain to different building types and zoning laws. Every parcel or area that can be developed has zoning laws that control parameters like building height, area, amount of parking, and how far the building can be placed from the street. The building site for The Link is located downtown Eugene in the business district, however it is also adjacent to apartment and residential blocks. There are specific zoning laws that will control how much I can expand/ change the building envelope. Source Cited : 1 Research and Report: What are the Permitted uses in your zone or zones?
