The use of property is controlled by the Town’s Zoning Ordinance (Chapter 42 of the Town Code). The Town of Lovettsville is divided into zoning districts as shown on the Town’s Official Zoning District Map. All properties within the Town are located in one or more of these districts, each with its own unique zoning requirements about how properties in that district may be used (i.e. residential, commercial, industrial, etc.).  In addition to land uses, the zoning ordinance regulates various aspects of development and construction, including the location and height of structures built on any parcel of land and minimum off-street parking requirements for specific uses. Citizens desiring to add or otherwise change the use of their property, start a home-based business, or undertake construction of a building, building addition, or other structural improvement (i.e. deck, swimming pool, storage shed, fence, etc.), are encouraged to contact the Town’s Zoning Administrator early in the process to ascertain the zoning requirements applicable to their property and project.
