A: Zoning ordinances can vary by city and county. You need to know what the permitted uses are under those local rules. If your intended land use is not permitted under the zoning rules, you can try to get the area rezoned, but it is usually simpler to get a zoning variance. A zoning variance is an exception to the rules for your particular use. Agricultural zoning is usually in place to preserve agricultural land and/or to prevent random commercial development. You should check with the local county and/or city government or consult with an attorney before you spend time or money on a non-agricultural use.
