While the most accurate way to track Zoning is via direct editing in ArcMap software, the “Zoning Add/Edit” tool can be used for quick zoning changes that follow parcel lines. Found under the “Public Works” tab in our YourTown demo site, the tool allows users to select parcels and add/edit the zoning information displayed in the map.
To try it out, click the Add/Edit Zoning button under the “Public Works” tab. It will look like the image above. Once activated, you’ll be prompted to choose a selection shape (shown below). Create a selection shape over one or more parcels and click “OK”.
After your parcel is selected, click on the drop down arrow next to “Zoning Code” to open a list of zoning code classes.
Select the most suitable zoning code for your parcel(s) and click Update to add or edit the code for that parcel. If there is a group of parcels that share a common zoning code and are within the same vicinity, just use the rectangle or polygon selection tool to select a group of target parcels that need to be changed!
