Comprehensive Plan & Zoning

Bellaire is zoned to protect the citizens, both residents and local businesses.

  • Changes in zoning must follow the Comprehensive Plan.
  • The purpose of zoning is to lessen congestion, protect access to air and light, lessen traffic, restrict size of buildings, and promote safety.
  • There is no mention of tax-base objectives as a purpose of zoning.
  • The Comprehensive Plan is scheduled to be revisited in 2020. I want to be there to make sure we don’t put auto service or tall buildings where we really don’t want them.
