Zoning Verification

By Phone - Zoning of a property can be verified over the phone at no charge. Call Development Services 816.969.1200 with the property address or legal description or parcel number.

In Writing - If you need zoning verification in writing, we will provide a "zoning confirmation letter" for a fee of $100.00. Please submit your request in writing to Development Services Department. Zoning Confirmation Letter to be provided by the City will include:

  • zoning designation of the specific property, based on the address, legal description, or parcel number
  • uses permitted in the district
  • confirmation that the property is in compliance with all applicable ordinance requirements, to the best of our knowledge
  • confirmation that the development is in conformance with development standards, such as density, height, setbacks, parking, landscaping, etc., if that information is available

Information in the letter will be based upon facts within the actual knowledge of City staff, which may include a record of any violations on file with the city. City staff does not conduct an independent investigation of the current status or conditions of the property.
