Check the zoning map. Then go to Zoning Regulations and select the chapter containing the rules for your district. If you have questions, call the Planning Department at 402-597-2077.
Some areas have "overlay" districts that impose additional restrictions on the use of the land. These districts include Floodplain/Floodway, Highway, and Public District. Citizens may call the numbers listed above to ask which overlays may apply to their property.
Sometimes lenders require zoning "verification" or "certification" letters when you are selling or financing property. The information required can vary from a simple statement of the current zoning classification on the property and what uses are permitted in that zone to a detailed evaluation of the conformance of the uses and improvements on the property to the zoning rules. The City may, in some cases, prepare letters of this type; to determine if this is possible contact 402-597-2077.
