Land Use Project Mapper -- The Richmond Parcel Mapper for Land Use Projects
permits querying and display of real estate parcels found in the city of Richmond.
It also provides information about current Land Use projects as described in the
section below. See the Layers section for metadata on other layers found in the map.
This application displays current and recent projects of the city of Richmond
Land Use Administration Division. Land Use Administration Division applications
are required for both by-right developments and developments that require special
approval from the City Planning Commission and City Council.
By-right applications, which do not require special approval from the
Planning Commission and
include Plans of Development (POD) and Subdivisions (Preliminary and Final). In
some instances, the zoning regulations in a given district are not conducive to
the proposed or existing development in the area. In instances where the underlying
zoning regulations cannot be met, special approval from the City Planning Commission
and City Council is required. These types of applications include Conditional Use
Permits, Community Unit Plans (CUP), Rezonings, Conditional Rezonings, and Special Use Permits (SUP).
-- The Property Search is also available from a Drilldown operation,
which identifies what is found at a specific geographic location. Drilldowns are
issued either by clicking once inside a parcel boundary, or by following the drilldown
link provided in the infobox created with an Address or Intersection query. Drilldown
queries only work at locations that fall within a parcel boundary, so clicking in
the right-of-way or outside the city will not return results.
Zoning Parcel Mapper
-- The Zoning Parcel Mapper allows for the querying and display
of zoning district classifications found in the city of Richmond. It also provides

Layers contained in the Zoning map are as follows:
- City Boundary
- City Historic Districts
- Community Unit Plans
- Design Overlay Districts
- Special Use Permits
