Zoning Certification

A zoning certification letter may be requested from the Nassau County Planning and Economic Opportunity Department by an individual who is seeking verification of the zoning status of a specific parcel of land.  Zoning certifications inform property owners, lenders, and prospective buyers of local zoning laws related to a particular property.
Zoning certification letters consist of the following information:
  • Current zoning district
  • Future land use map designation
  • A list of permitted uses in the zoning district
  • Identification of zoning resolutions, conditionals uses, and/or variance requests associated with the property
  • Development regulations, as applicable
