Zoning maps available on county website
Curious about a property's zoning? Property Appraiser Mike Wells said Pasco County's zoning maps are now available on his website, http://appraiser.pascogov.com. While the zoning designation has always been shown on the individual property records, the new feature will allow a broader view with linked zoning type descriptions. From the home page, select "Records Search," then select "View Maps" and enter the property you wish to view. After the map page has loaded, on the left side under "Choose Layers," click on "Select Additional Layer" and select either "BOCC Future Land Use 2025" or "BOCC Zoning," then click the "Draw" button. When the map has refreshed, the new linked legend will appear on the right side of the map window.
