Planning and Zoning Administration

What Can We Do For You?

The Planning and Zoning Administration division works with residents, businesses, and community leaders to shape the urban development of the city. The Planning and Zoning Administration unit is responsible for implementing and updating Riverdale’s Comprehensive Plan.


Before setting up your business in the city, we encourage applicants to review the Use Table and Zoning Map to check the property zoning and make sure their proposed use is permitted. 


In some instances, the use may be listed as permitted if all the required development standards are met. Some uses require Special Land Use Permit (SLUP) approval.

To check property zoning district, use the interactive map below:
