Zoning Information


The City is divided into different zoning districts which are specifically delineated areas in which regulations and requirements uniformly govern the use, placement, spacing, and size of land and buildings. The Unified Zoning Regulations outline the requirements associated with each district and define the designated zoning districts. We administer the Unified Zoning Regulations for the City of Billings and Yellowstone County’s zoning jurisdiction. We also administer Special Zoning Districts including the Town of Broadview.
