Land Development Division

Development Review and Zoning

The Land Development Division is responsible for development review, zoning administration, and mapping and graphics.

We’re the people to call if you have questions about:

  • The zoning designation of a property
  • What regulations apply to that district (permitted uses, setbacks, height limits, etc)
  • If there are any special overlay districts that may apply to a property
  • Subdividing a property or joining two properties together
  • The sign regulations for Champaign
  • The Historic Preservation regulations of the Zoning Ordinance.
  • Anything regarding annexation
