Planning & Zoning
Sometimes referred to as a Master Plan, the General Plan of the City is a document that expresses the vision for the management of growth and development today and far into the future. The Plan has its roots in citizen input and public participation.
Zoning is the authority given to the City of Logan by the State of Utah to regulate the use, placement, spacing, and size of land and buildings. In short, zoning is intended to protect the health, safety, and welfare of properties and owners from abuses by others.
