Base Zoning applies to all property in Nashville -- the zoning of a lot determines allowable land use, setbacks, and other restrictions. In areas with Conservation Zoning, the Conservation Zoning guidelines work as an "overlay" in addition to the Base Zoning. For lots that are not in the Conservation Zoning district, only Base Zoning applies.
To find out what the base zoning of a lot is, use the Metro Planning Commission Map Site and reference the Metro Zoning Code. You may also contact a zoning examiner at Metro Codes.
