 Land Use


Land Use Icon

DRCOG's regional land use data provides zoning and future land use information, based on local plans and ordinances. The data is available in ESRI geodatabase or shapefile format, or as pdf map documents. The culmination of collaborative efforts with more than 50 local governments, the data represents a snapshot in time of the region's land use patterns.

Characteristics of the Dataset
  • Collection date: 2008

  • Update schedule: As needed and as funding is available

  • Database Characteristics: Generalized zoning and future land use categories that are comparable across jurisdictions; in some cases residential dwelling units per acre and commercial floor area ratios are also available

  • Potential uses: The data is intended for both regional-level planning and community-level analyses. Some examples of uses include:

    • Buildability analysis

    • Transit-oriented development

    • Infill and redevelopment

    • Land use modeling

    • Accessibility analysis
