Building & Zoning | Zoning Map | Zoning Ordinance (PDF)
The City’s Zoning Ordinance and Map are designed to protect the public health, safety, and welfare of the community by establishing minimum regulations for development and use. The main categories of zoning districts in Three Rivers are: Business (B), Industrial (I), and Residential (R) …as well as our Airport (A). With the exception of the city’s airport, each main category has three or more specific zones (e.g., B-2, or R-3). Collectively, these zones (as shown below) comprise a total of 14 Zoning Districts with specific zoning and zoning-related regulations established for each; links to specific districts are provided in the bulleted list (below), and our Schedule of Regulations for all zoning districts is provided HERE; refer to Chart 3.
- Business Districts: B-1, B-2, B-3
- City Airport District: A
- Industrial Districts & Parks: I-1, I-2 & I-3, I-4
- Residential Districts: R-2 thru R-5, R-MH
