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
