How do I learn the zoning laws of Kentucky?

On Behalf of | Aug 16, 2019 | commercial real estate |

The zoning laws of Kentucky are in place to ensure that businesses do not overstep their bounds if they are operating close to a residential area. Zoning laws are divided into sections: commercial, residential and industrial. Each different section has laws that govern what can be built in those sections. So, how do you learn the zoning laws of Kentucky?

The best way to learn about the zoning laws that affect your business is to contact the clerk of the county in which your business is going to operate. If you are not successful with the county clerk, try to contact the township clerk where your business will be located. You can also speak to the zoning officer of your township.

It’s important to understand that zoning is a local issue. This means that the zoning laws of one town will likely be different than the zoning laws of another town. This means that if you are moving your business from Lexington to Louisville, you should absolutely research the zoning laws in Louisville. They might not be the same as the zoning laws in Lexington.

If you operate your business in Louisville without knowing the zoning laws, your business might wind up being shut down if it violates any laws. This can hurt your bottom line immensely and could even lead to you having to close the business permanently.

Zoning laws must be followed when operating a business in Kentucky. You need to check these laws before registering your business, purchasing a commercial property or trying to operate a business. If you fail to do so, your business could be in jeopardy.
