Zoning Code

The City of Middletown necessarily maintains an extensive zoning code in order to effectively manage the development of the city and to fully utilize the city’s resources for the residents. Residents are well served by zoning that addresses the needs of the community as well as helps to facilitate economic development. However, the zoning code as written cannot fully address every situation that may come up during times of robust expansion. The Board of Zoning Appeals addresses the needs of the community that may require variance from the written code.
