It is important to understand that each property located within the City of Lufkin has a zoning designation that determines the uses that are permitted on that property.  There is an official zoning map and a zoning ordinance that work together.  The map determines the zoning locations and the ordinance addresses the regulations that apply to each zoning category.


The Zoning Ordinance also regulates exceptions to the requirements and supplemental development regulations, which include the landscaping requirements.


An application can be made to change the zoning on any piece of property within the city if the proposed use is not permitted under the current zoning.  You can download an Rezoning Application in PDF format or pick one up at City Hall, Room 221.


There are cases where the proposed use requires a Special Use Permit to be allowed under the current zoning classification.  If the Special Use Permit is granted by the Planning and Zoning Commission then the current zoning will remain the same with the Special Use also being permitted.


Always confirm what your property is zoned with the Planning Department (936) 633-0247.
