Zoning Records

1904-[ongoing]

Series documents the development and implementation of codes and policies relating to the zoning of county lands and to illustrate and locate the various zoned areas within the county. Records include uniform zone codes and ordinances depicting various zoned lands in the county. Information in codes and ordinances includes definition, code/ordinance numbers, purposes, uses, conditions for use, and changes made to codes/ordinances. Maps include area and/or zone descriptions, dates created, scales, and commissioners' signatures. Areas are typically zoned for residential, industrial, commercial, flood plain, agricultural, timber, public and government, and mineral extraction uses.

The Web-based Deschutes County Property Information application includes numerous GIS map layers showing zoning-related information. The searchable DevDocs application provides information and images of various "date files" planning documents related to zone changes. The Land Use Historical Maps include older versions of comprehensive plans, zoning ordinances, and related maps and information.
