Planning and Zoning
Can I change the zoning or General Plan designation of my property?
Zone changes and General Plan amendments require Planning Board review and the approval of the City Council. Zone changes require a General Plan amendment if the proposed zoning district is not consistent with the General Plan.
You can submit an application for a zoning change at City Hall.
What are setbacks?
The term setback means the required distance separating a building or structure from a property line. For more information, please view the City of Lyons Zoning Ordinance.
What businesses can I operate on my property?
First, determine the zoning district your property is located in by checking the City's zoning map or calling the City Clerk at (620) 257-2320.
Next, look up the permitted uses for your zoning district. If your use is not listed in the permitted use section, check the conditional use section to determine if your use requires a Conditional Use Permit (CUOP).
The Planning and Zoning page of this site offers a short list of available uses as well as a zoning map.
