Where can I find a listing of the zoning codes in NJ?

Asked by Mercedes, 07032 Wed Oct 17, 2007

I am a certified massage therapist and would like to have my studio set up at my home. Will that be a problem? What does it mean if a home is in a R10 zone? VR? R-50? R-4? O/B/Res?

I would recommend calling down to the town hall and asking them their website address. From there take some time reviewing the code your are interested in and then contact the building or zoning official and discuss your specific questioning. In regards to your specific question, it would be wise to figure out what zoning will allow you to do what you need to do and again i would just run it by the official. Your REALTOR will also be knowledgeable of the zoning there and should be able to help you locate the right property to fit your needs.

It's so important to be aware of zoning laws. They can vary from community to community. If you're nervous about it, I would consider hiring a professional to help you. That's the best way to ensure that you don't make any mistakes. I hope that's helpful! http://www.timothymaralaw.com/newpage

Zoning categories and symbols vary among communities. A C-1 zone in one city is not necessarily the same as a C-1 in another. Typically, jurisdictions use letters of the alphabet as code abbreviations to identify the use allowed in a physical geographic area -- such as R for residential, C for commercial, and I for industrial. These symbols are usually paired with some number. The number can specify the level of use, or it may indicate a certain amount of acreage or square footage for that particular property.
Also work at home laws vary by city. The easiest way is to go on your city's website and go down to permits. It should tell you if you need a permit to work at home in your area.

Hi,
Call the town and ask them to fax you the information. Most are pretty good at doing that. Some will make you come in person to get a copy. Although zoning terms can be the same, I only ever use the information for zoning from the exact town of the property.

Yes I am looking to purchase a home in Warren County. I have seen listings of homes that I am interested in and a few have the zoning codes but have no idea what they mean or what type of code I should be looking for.

Call the zoning and planning office for the town where the property is located. Some towns place this data online. Most do not. All of the towns are used to receiving these types of inquiries. Some even allow you to make an appt to come in and personally discuss. As a Realtor, I have done this for clients many times. I believe form your prior questions you are either in Mercer or perhaps Warren/Somerset County?
