Zoning regulations are the most commonly used tool for implementing the community’s goals and policies as expressed in the Comprehensive Land Use Plan and Small Area Plans. The Unified Development Chapter (UDC) is the official body of rules and regulations to guide land use and development in the city of Duluth. It includes permitted uses; minimum lot area and setback requirements; development standards concerning parking, landscaping, screening, lighting, sustainability, signs and fences, lot subdivision and connectivity requirements; environmental regulations about wetlands, flood plains, streams, and storm water; and special rules for the airport, college area, Skyline Parkway, and historic properties.
Some types of uses or development require administrative approval, or approval from the Planning Commission or City Council. Checklists and application forms are all available online.

The official zoning maps for the city are in electronic format, and can be viewed in Community Planning’s new interactive online map. You can also view layers relating to Future Land Use, Streams, Shoreland Management Zones, Floodways, and the Skyline Parkway Overlay.
