What is my property zoned and what can I build on it?
Using the GIS mapping system will allow you to find the zoning of your property.

If you would prefer to print zoning by tax map, that can be found on the "Zoning" page, which is located within the Planning Department page.

For a zoning verification letter, call (615) 444-3647 and be prepared to give the Tax ID number, street address and owner name.

Once you know the zoning of the parcel, you can look in the Zoning Ordinance for a list of uses permitted by right and by Use on Appeal. The Zoning Ordinance also provides information relative to building setbacks, minimum lot size, maximum height, etc. A link to the Zoning Ordinance is available on the Planning Department's Zoning page of the website.
