Once you have identified your zone, see what can be built without City approval, what needs City approval, and what is prohibited (which is not listed in the previous options).

What is permitted and what is conditional in your property's zone? 

All properties in Jacksonville Beach are located in a specific zone, and each zone has what are called "approved" uses and "conditional" uses. This is important because changes can happen in your neighborhood that your were not away of. 

What 'zone' do I live in?
