I have found the best research involves a mixture of doing my own research, involving professionals, and asking questions to the zoning officials. These resources you can tap into are:
Zoning Maps – Most jurisdictions have a map available online and in the zoning office showing the deliniations of zoning districts. GIS – Some jurisdictions have Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
Zoning Code – You can access the zoning code online for a jurisdiction and familiarize yourself with it. Surveyor – Surveyors have a deep knowledge of the zoning codes in the areas they work in.
There are many different types of land use that you can develop. – Agricultural – Residential – Commercial – Industrial – Utilities
