Business Zoning Information
Forest Park has had zoning since the incorporation of the community in 1961. The most recent comprehensive revision of the zoning code dates to 1986. The zoning code and sign code are available online at the website of Codified Ordinances publisher, American Legal Publishing Corporation. Below are links to the chapters related to zoning and development:
Important: The online version of the Zoning Code does not contain the tables for Appendix B (Use Status for Specific Zoning Districts) and Appendix C (Basic Requirements by Zoning District) that are found in the print version of the code. These are reproduced on the Zoning Tables page:
Zoning Tables (Appendices B, C and D)
Zoning for a Specific Property
Due to the master-planned nature of the community, most zoning districts cover large tracts of land; there is very little "spot-zoning" within Forest Park. Zoning for a particular property can be found if you know the street address, by consulting the zoning-by-street table.
For assistance in determining the zoning of a property or in interpreting the code, please contact the Community Development Department.
